    I moved my site with 301 a half year ago from subdomain, to domain.
    ecommerce.site.com -> site.com

    Now I think that my old site's linkbuilding technique holds me back from ranking better in serp.
    I used cheap pbn links on my inner pages (but not for the homepage) and redirected to the new page as well. ecommerce.site.com/product -> site.com/product

    What If I cut the inner page redirects and lead them to "no mans land" and leave the homepage redirect like nothing happened?

    In this case can the existing domain-age/pr/da/pa/juice flows to new domain, with only a homepage redirect?
    And can I get rid of the bad links with this method?

    Let me explain a little bit further.
    I moved my site a new domain with fully 301 redirect.

    I am having backlinks for my old site, on the inner pages - ecommerce.site.com/product
    Them I redirected to my new sites inner page - site.com/product
    I think them are malicious in some ways, not for the whole domain, just for the redirected pages as explained.
    So i want to disable the inner page redirect, so it cant pass the bad lunkjuice/divesity for the new site.

    But I dont want to lose the domain-age/hompage-links of the old domain, so I leave the homepage redirect.
    ecommerce.site.com -> site.com

    i dont see a problem here, you can cut redirects that seem nasty and leave the working ones.

    you can also try to redirect the "malicious" page to goo.gl that would redirect to your new page. im not saying it will work, but it might be worth a try, especially if you want to cut off the redirect anyway. If it wont change anything, just do like you planned (cut off the redirect)


    however what makes you think that ecommerce.site.com/product is penalised and ecommerce.site.com is not? thats weird

    Because other product pages, are fine. Just this one is messed up, and I dont know why...

    I think i am having some kind of algorithmic "soft-penalty" only on domain/page basis.
    Back in days I have built way more backlinks for my new product pages, to see faster results than the others
    (worked for quite a long time)

    Now the serp looks like this for this specified product:
    #1 - RD3
    #2 - RD2
    #3 - RD5
    #4 - me - RD50

    For first I outranked everyone for this product, now I am falling back.
    I think because I have way more backlink than everyone else, and google got suspicious.

    Thats when I decided to get rid of some old backlinks.
    And realised, that I am having about 20 redirected old backlinks for this product page, them are easy to get rid of this way.

    Home Page:
    Why redirect at all ? is the old subdomain getting referral traffic ? You could just try to eliminate the negative links pointing the the subdomain too...
