Hi Guys,

I happened across the ability on GoDaddy to do "Forward Only" vs "Forward with Masking". "Forward with Masking" sounds like it would lead to a better user experience since users would believe that the URL they typed in is the site they are visiting as opposed to the URL changing on the "redirect only", however I'm curious of the SEO implications.

Masking is not a good choice. It is actually a bad user experience. It deceives the visitor so they don't know where they truly are. And should they ever need to share or save a link to a page on the site, they can't because the page is masked to the main URL, not the actual page.
