    I've picked up an expired domain that was HUGE in size. There are thousands upon thousands of pages that this site had. When I'm rebuilding I'm thinking of instead of auto-generating all the pages back from the grave that I should redirect them back to the homepage and only recreate the few that I want to use going forward. Is there any problem with this tactic in order to keep linkjuice and boost the homepage?

    Doing a 301 or using 404 To redirect plugin should fix the problem. I doubt if you would be loosing link juice by doing it since they are redireced back to the same domain

    Yes. I edit the 404 page template of wordpress and add a 301 permanent redirect code in it.

    This is important to keep all the link juice.
