domain masking

Can anyone tell me if there is a web site which can explain the pluses and
the minuses relating to domain masking?
I'm looking after a web site which has the main domain as normal (and un
masked) . At some time, another URL was brought into use and this was set up
using domain masking. It appears that some search engines do not read these
'masked pages'.  I'd appreciate a source which explains the whole thing in
plain English (not too much teccy stuff!) Michael  Roberts

The green on black was a bit scary... had to copy the text to my word

Apart from that you are probably right about the skinflints.

But try this one. I bought an address and set my website up on it. Then
someone wanted the domain name and bought it from me for real live cash, I
couldn't really refuse a reasonable offer. So I got another domain name and
started from scratch. Now, it may be that this one will appeal to someone in
the same way. So I was wondering about using this masking to send users from
what may well later on become my third domain name to my existing second
domain name. BTW I don't do frames, and its a means to an end rather than a
money making thing.
Also what are the likely penalties of creating a mirror site on my third
domain name, exact in every detail apart from the site name..? Any known
penalties ...

Sounds more like a serverside redirect rather than masking - and, done
properly, that presents no problems for the SEs..

If you feel that any of the above is incorrect,
inappropriate or offensive in any way,
please ignore it and accept my apologies.
