Redirect domains without hurting SEO

I have a client with a site, we'll say exampledomain.com

He also owns exampledomain.org, exampledomain.net, exampledomain.info, etc.

The web developer has all, but the primary domain, parked with GoDaddy. So customers that hit the exampledomain.org get that generic park page.

The SEO efforts have all gone into the primary domain.

Is there a good way to forward the additional domains (.net,.org,...) to the primary domain (.com) without hurting the SEO work ? Is a 301 the way to go ?

TIA experts.

Forwarding those alternate TLDs will not hurt  nor benefit SEO. What does hurt SEO is if the domain name was changed or the site goes down.

It would not benefit SEO since there is no new content added to the sites for the respective TLDs.

I would advise not to redirect the domains as it'll be more to maintain but to keep them on the clients registrar un-used. Making the search engines auto correct anyone who puts in .net .info etc would be better.

If you however plan on using language, country TLD then it would be a completed different conversation.
