I have a client that bought about 10 urls for their business. Their current url is which describes their business well.  They want me to point their other urls to that site as well. These urls are things like,,, etc. Note,. i don't have this list in front of me but they are similar to that.  The url will not be re-written. That is to say that when someone goes to they will still end up at

If i point these extra urls at will that be considered duplicate content? I know people were doing this 5 years ago, but wouldn't google be wise to this practice by now? Won't this hurt them?

If it's alright to do, should i do it with 301 redirects (seems against the purpose of that) or with dns?

I've been reading up on this all morning and have found differing opinions, and none of them quite cover this issue.
