Hi, I have a complicated question (at least, it seems complicated to me). I host my website on Go-daddy and purchased 999 pages, which of course I'll never need. But then I thought I would use some of those pages for my hobbies or other business ideas. They are not so important to me to purchase more hosting for them. I have purchased a few domain names, and forwarded them with masking to their respective pages. You cannot get to the pages through the main domain, only if you type in the correct domain name in the address bar. My question is, will these little domain ever really get ranked by search engines? Do the Search engines even know they exist? I read several articles here about this, but they were dated several years ago, so I don't really know what the current situation is. How (if possible) can I get my silly hobby domains listed on search engines?

I did read quite a few topics and articles about this, but they didn't seem to fit since the domain name has been forwarded and masked.

Thanks, I look forward to hearing your response.
Bohemian.

It depends on what you mean technically by making and forwarding.

I created several pages on my current hosting package, and forwarded my new domain name to those pages, and that new domain name comes up in the address bar. I might be incorrect in my term usage, I thought that was what I read was forwarding and masking.

The simple aswer is No and No

domain masking/forwarding at GoDaddy is what the rest of the world knows as "frame-formarding" where a frameset with a 0 pixel height top frame is built on the domain name and the target page is the src attribute for the main frame.

I just tried an experiment. I emailed myself the link to the forwarded domain, and it took me there while keeping the domain masked. Now, if I link to those pages (which are all the exact same address, because it is forwarded) from other pages and from my blogs, which are a diff domain, wouldn't the forwarded name get ranked eventually? I know the engines actually rank urls and not names... so... would it actually be ranking those pages... with the unforwarded/unmasked original domain name... yes?

No, because those don't exist.

The documents that are located on URLs in frames existing on the parent domain NOT on the domain that is "framing" them.

There are many HR discussions on frames and iframes.
