    Hi,
    So I've come across an expired domain I want to register, however I looked at its history and it looks like the domain was redirected to another domain before it expired. Is it still worth registering it or would all the link juice be flowed to the redirected domain?

    Thanks

    If the domain has some PR, it's obviously not valid. If the domain currently has some great backlinks, it could be worth the risk, but even those links also could get redirected at some point.

    Don't bother registering domains that were previously redirected. Odds are, all the stats you saw (backlinks, PR..etc) were technically for the domain it was redirecting too and not the one you're looking up. Best to just move on past those and find another one to register :)
