    I was planning to buy another domain for my site which has extremely good keyword and will get traffic to my site when indexed properly. My site is about a year old now and indexed well in google. Will using one more domain for the site cause problems with SEO?

    Thanks for your replies.

    Are you planning on just doing a redirect from the new domain to the one you already have, or are you thinking of building an exact mirror of your current website, and thus have both of them competing for the same keywords with the same content?

    No, it shouldn't affect. Many companies buy up similar domain names and redirect the traffic to their main website also. If they aren't penalised I don't think you well. Just make sure the domain that is doing the redirecting doesn't have any duplicate content from your main website.
