    I have bought about 10 domains so far but I just realized I have been making a big mistake looking at the backlinks.
    in ahrefs it shows the total number of backlinks, right? well, by default, it counts backlinks to inner pages also.
    so if the site www.example.com has 3 backlinks and www.example.com/inner.html has 80 backlinks, ahrefs will show that the domain www.example.com has 83 total backlinks

    I have this problem with my domains, the homepage has very little backlinks but inner pages have good backlinks
    am I screwed?
    can I 301 all inner pages to homepage? if yes, how?
    wouldn't it look suspicious if all domains in my PBN 301 their inner pages to homepage?

    man, I am so screwed, I feel like an idiot now.

    Whats the other stats on the domains? You should never base your judgement of domains on just ahrefs. Have a look at the other metrics, they might still be off value. Specifically mozrank,da/pa, many believe google don't use these but they give a good idea on whether they will help you rank.

    If you're using wordpress on your site you can get the plugin link juice keeper to redirect those broken links to the homepage.

    There is an 404 redirect plugin that does that, install it and you are good to go.
