Should I do a 301 redirect to a page that has no backlink and won't be used anymore?

    I MESSED UP THE TITLE: SORRY!

    I've been wondering, before I had this setup.

    /where-to-buy-keyword-prefix/
    This page had four pictures explained what the products were, and then redirected them to each individual page.

    /where-to-buy-product-1/
    /where-to-buy-product-2/
    /where-to-buy-product-3/
    /where-to-buy-product-4/


    Now, I found that it is useless to have those extra pages and now I am only going to have the first page and show all the products there which links to amazon(a href links for amazon will have n0follow so link juice doesn't pass)

    I only did backlinks to /where-to-buy-keyword-prefix/, If I remove those pages, will the first page lose link juice or will all the juice go back to that page since it isn't leading anywhere else anymore.

    Or should I just do a 301 redirect from those product pages to the main page?

    Just leave the pages but seo the one you want. Silo them and seo the others as well. 4 pages is not a massive site but is certainly not as droopy as a single page site.

    This site has over 20 pages so far, I'm building an authority site but those 4 pages wound up being useless so I'm putting it all into one page, but I already redirected those four pages to the main buying page, and things are looking better in the serps, so thank you for your suggestion.

    No worries mate it was just a thought but if your getting results that you like then you have done the right thing.
