    Backlinks points to www.something.com

    Domain however was changed to: something.com

    Redirect from www.something.com > something.com is in place

    Will Link Juice be lower cause of redirect ?

    Any Ideas? Oppinions? Ideas?

    Same site redirects( page to page) are known to retain most of the link juice that gets passed on to the destination URL. The same cannot be said about different domain redirects, though. There's bound to be loss of link juice to some extent.

    so, we are left in the dark then.
    Example given by me would indicate a domain redirect, not page redirect...

    I read that part but mentioned it ( page to page) anyway. You'll lose some juice but that's not the end of the world. Chin up and build more links.

    it's for a client.
    I will punch some € of it then ;)

    Its kind if shattering my soul, how much opportunieties they waste with so much small details.. One even did not know he was #5 for some REAL money keyword...

    however, I will convince him to have those links be corrected.

    It's not going to lower link juice, google understand this already. But you need to make sure that you check your inner pages too. Check ur non www inner pages and redirect them too to the correct www versions.

    Do you have search console for www and non www versions ?

    To some extent all redirects carry risk in SEO.
