Do search engines index a new domain that just redirect to the main site?

    I have a site called for example foodealsdotcom and a new bought domain greatfooforyoudotcom that simply does a 301 redirect to the main site

    Do search engines index greatfooforyoudotcom at all?
    Is it possible that, one day, searching for "great foo for you" keywords, I will find the greatfooforyoudotcom exploiting the exact match of the search?


    How can I use the new bought domain in order to gain and redirect traffic to the main site?

    A true 301 redirect is a permanent move to the new domain, passing all PR/rank along. It's unlikely that G will see the starting domain as a separate site; that's the point of a 301. It's like using bit.ly (which is a 301 redirect service) and hoping your site will rank for a bit.ly search (not a great example, as the volume is huge here, but you catch my drift.)
