    I have purchased a number of quality expired domains over the last couple months, and I'm noticing that some have both www and non-www Backlinks for the same domain. As long as www redirects to non-www or vice versa it shouldn't matter correct, all the juice should go to the hosted site?

    Ive also noticed Moz's open site explorer has different PA values www vs non-www. If I use the extension with the lesser of the two would the site actually have less PA in the eyes of search engines?

    Here's what I usually do:

    1. Look at the strongest backlinks;
    2. Check if those links are easily replaced or not;
    3. If not, I would set to whatever those links are pointing to

    Does that make sense at all?

    As long as www redirects to non-www or vice versa you will be fine, the link juice will pass
