    Hi all

    I just purchased an expired site and its showing so many pages in google when I did "site:..." in google. How can I safely redirect all these non existent page to my home page. I installed wordpress. Any good plugin without loosing link juice ?

    Thanks
    Hwman

    "All 404 Redirect to Homepage" Plugin can do that for you.

    If you plan using that website with the same type of content it is a good idea to check the good backlinks and write relevant content for those pages.

    Link juice keeper plugin ... that'll direct all your 404 errors to the home page and you can sop up all that good link juice.

    It's an old plugin that hasn't been updated in years but it still works well.

    Backlinks saver is one of the options, not sure if it's still around though
