    Cloaking is a black hat SEO technique in which the content is redirected unnaturally so that a page could have better indexing and higher rankings. The name "cloaking" comes from cloak content, which is made in order to misrepresent search engine rankings - the information presented to the user is different from the information presented to SERPs. Since cloaking is illegal and a violation to search engines’ terms of service, a site using this technique may permanently be banned.

    Cloaking means disguising a link so that it doesn’t display the actual URL to which the visitor is sent when he clicks on the link. It is most often applied with affiliate links which have several severe disadvantages that can cost an affiliate money

    Cloaking is a spamming search engine optimization (SEO) technique that some webmasters use to show the content of their sites to the search engine spider so they could rank higher for their keywords, and they show something else to the visitors.

    Cloaking is a search engine optimization technique in which the content is different from users to search engine crawlers for better indexing.

    In other words, cloak definition is, the web server is specially programmed to return different content to search engines than it returns to regular users, in an attempt to distort search engine rankings by making a cloak content. You might have understood now that cloaking is an illegal practice and is considered a Black hat SEO. The Search engine may permanently ban from our index any sites or site authors that engage in cloaking.

    Hey @Theomax

    Cloaking is the process of either hiding a webpage’s content or an affiliate tracking code on a link. This is a negative practice since it’s against the guidelines of search engines. We are strongly recommending to avoid it unless you do not want to have problems with searching engines in the future :)
