    Does domain name forwarding effect search engine listings?

    I'm looking to get some domain name forwarding done.

    .. but if I had a site like and that auto-redirected to straight away... would google or any other search engine not like that.... and not list me as highly?

    Is there something called domain masking? Would that make a difference to search engine listings?

    Thanks in advance,
