comment Is a masked url re-direct hurting our rankings
@DisgruntledGoat - I know - don't shoot the messenger. We are not using a free page builder. We don't have any pages on that domain. We have just registered the domain with them and are forwarding all traffic to another domain.

There is no facility to do any other sort of redirect with the domain registrar we have. I can't use an htaccess file as we have have no host for these sites, just the domain registered.

@DisgruntledGoat - the registrar can't do a proper redirect they mask the domain "for free" web2.freeparking.co.uk/default.asp?f=9. We don't have any server for this domain so we can't run any php code.

It has been several months since the second change was made. The first change was over 12 months ago. Other pages changed at the same time are not showing this error.

comment Why does Webmaster tools show duplicate Meta Descriptions for correctly redirected pages?
Because we need to change the url of the page. If I didn't redirect then any links would go dead with no indication that it had moved. Google specifically recommend this approach: support.google.com/webmasters/answer/93633?hl=en

comment How can I objectively check my search engine ranking?
Incognito mode does actually disable cookies, it just removes them at the end of the incognito session, so when you start a new incognito session you start off with no cookies.

Thanks - very helpful. Also learnt a new meaning for the acronym SERPs (in the UK this stands for State Earnings-Related Pension Scheme!)
