    Pointer Domain names


    Is having a main URL and then a pointer domain name to that URL a bad thing?

    like, If I have a URL that is hosted and when you type in a keyphrase that original URL pops up in green text on google as the MAIN URL, and then I have a domain name called something other than the original domain name that is easier to recite, I will tell people to type in that domain name that is easier to remember and it sends to my original URL.

    I used to this but I stopped as I think it can give rise to duplicate content problems. Also I think it can split your link juice. ie both domains end up with the same visable PR. When I stopped the pointing service my SERPs improved very soon afterwards. I donot know if it was for that reason but personally I would advise against it.
