    I found a PR domain that has a handful of pr 6, 5, 4 links to it from authorative sites. However I notice half of the links are directed to the homepage www.site.com and the other half are directed to www.site.com/en/

    I dont know jack about subdomains or redirects but I feel if I want to capitilize on link juice i'll need to do something here like redirect? Any help?

    That looks like the english version (or landing page?) of a website.

    Yeah you're going to want to redirect the /en/ page to another page of your choosing.

    This is really simple and can be done through the .htaccess file.

    Just google "how to 301 redirect a specific page through .htaccess"

    Right but what if the domain is a deleted domain. So I am hand regging it. The /en/ page wont exist

    No but if the backlinks are still pointing to that page then you need to use a .htaccess file as motzart suggested...I'd probably redirect that juice to the homepage in which case your .htaccess file would look like:

    Redirect 301 /en/ hxxp://www.rootdomain.com

    Just copy that line into a blank text file (replacing the last part for your domain), save it as .htaccess (notice the dot before the name) and upload it to the root directory of the domain.

    Or if it's on WordPress you can just use a redirect plugin. Keep in mind if the /en/ page was deindexed the link juice will not flow through even if you rebuild the page.

    The site is a deleted domain, from 3 years ago. Therefore it is completely de-indexed.

    I heard you say something similar in regards to if a site is de-indexed the link juice is dead forever. Unless I have that worded wrong you are saying any root domain, page, post, etc that is de-indexed will not flow?

    If this is correct you are stating that the thousands of people who buy deleted domains are wrong. I must be not understanding you properly.

    Don't listen to him - I can tell you for sure that he is wrong.

    If the backlinks are still there then the page will get re-indexed but I'd still redirect it to the homepage.

    This, and if you run Wordpress CMS, there's a Wordpress plugin for this. Look it up.

    It'll automatically redirect all missing pages to your main page.
