    On many expired domains i find some of the backlinks are linking to other urls than the homepage. If i redirect this urls to the homepage will i lose link juice?

    You will not loose any link juice. I actually redirect expired domains with good backlinks to my websites and if the link profile is strong I get good value for my money.

    301 redirects 'devalue' link juice transfer in the same way the ordinary links do - that is, about 15% per hop.

    Home Page:
    You get link juice from entire website using the following code in .htaccess file:

    Code:
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} example\.com$
    RewriteRule .* http://www.example-domain-getting-redirect.com//? [L,R=301]
    
    It means that any page on example.com/anything would redirect to www.example-domain-getting-redirect.com
