I have several different urls for my forum, usually they end up switching all over to clubadventist.com I would like to be able to have google list all the domains, which from what I understand should give me a lot higher ranking.

Domains like the dot org. net. .info of the above as well as adventistforum. com org info etc etc?

Not sure about the ranking part. If you have 1 URL you get 100% of the traffic registered against that site. If you split the access in to .com, .org, .net, .info would your ranking not go down as you're now only getting 25% traffic registered to each?

Like I said, I'm not certain about this but it is what I've been lead to believe.

I'm pretty sure that traffic listed on multiple URLs hits against your PR rating (as duplicate content would exist at multiple locations).

The best "ranking" has multiple sites linking to content (and not syndicating the same content).

For the BEST ranking you should choose which domain you like the most, and target that as your primary domain, and set the other domains to forward to it.

Indeed, watch that duplicate content, it's a big no no in SEO land.
