    I have an expired domain where 70% of the joocy links are pointing to what was a subdirectory (domain.com/fr)

    The other 30% of the links are pointing to the root (domain.com).

    What is the best way to get all the link juice to just the homepage?

    Should I install wordpress on a sub directory (domain.com/fr) and 301 the root to it (if thats even possible)? Or should I install the site on the root (domain.com) and then create the subdirectory (domain.com/fr) and 301 it to the root (domain.com)?

    Install wordpress on domain.com
    Create a page -> domain.com/fr and set it as your static homepage.
    So, domain.com/fr will be rediected to domain.com with all it's backlink.

    Will that work or I misunderstood the whole think !

    Pretty sure you can just 301 the subdirectory to your homepage. A plugin called linkjuicekeeper I use, it 301's everything to the homepage

    Create a page, use Simple 301 to send it to the home page :)
