I have a few domain names that I have redirected to sections of my forum. And am not sure if this is the best method for SEO.
The homepage and main site is www.ecoforumz.com
On the home page I have different forums. What I did was redirect different domains to the specific forum.
On the homepage I have the below forums and have a domain name that points directly to the forum.
Green forums - has www.greenforumz.com pointing to it
organic forums - has www.organicforumz.com pointing to it
global warming forums - has www.globalwarmingforumz.com pointing to it.
Is it better just to point all domain names to the same homepage?
Should I submit each of these domains to search engines?
Should I not use 301 redirects and use the .htaccess file instead?
Any and all advice would be much appreciated.
