    URL masking is hiding the actual link. It can be because of the following reasons: Cover up an affiliate link, Shorten a link or track clicks and stats. I've seen a lot of people do it especially with affiliates. I don't see much problems except for duplicate content issues.

    URL Masking means that the visitors to the domain name will be forwarded to your destination website, however the URL in their browser address bar will remain the same. Also known as Stealth Redirection or URL Hiding, this will ensure that your visitors see the original domain name and not the destination URL.

    URL masking is covering up a URL with a different one. It presents one URL when the actual URL is something dissimilar.

    url shortening is good, but has no benefit for seo. I like using googles short url tool

    As name suggest mask the url. In this way, actual link is hidden.
