    Cloaking is a search engine optimization technique in which the content is different from users to search engine crawlers for better indexing. The purpose of cloaking is sometimes to deceive search engine so they display the page when it would not otherwise be displayed.

    Cloaking is a search engine optimization technique in which the content or information presented to the user is different from that presented to search engine crawlers (i.e. spiders or bots) for better indexing. In other words, 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. The Search engine may permanently ban from our index any sites or site authors that engage in cloaking.

    Cloaking is a technique that distributes content on a web page from a search engine in such a way that different content is displayed on the search engine than what is given for regular human users. The goal of cloaking is to promote a website's search engine rank on some keywords.

    In cloaking, search engines and users are not really on the same page. Therefore, both the user and the search engine are being cheated.

    Cloaking is one of the black hat SEO techniques. Cloaking shows the different content or URLs to users and different for the search engines crawlers (Google) it is called the cloaking. For example, cloaking is displaying the page of images to the user, but other hand showing only text content to the search engine.

    URL Cloaking
    is a link disguising from bots and/or humans by hiding the actual link behind the original one. Commonly used to hide sensitive information on the URL, like IDs, Code, Source. This method of redirection in not highly recommended by search engines.

    However, Affiliate Marketing is sort of a special case where there are several other reasons that people want to cloak their affiliate links.

    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. "Clocking" is a search engine optimization(SEO) technique in which the information or content presented to the search engine crawler i.e spider is different from that presented to the user for better indexing.

    Also known as stealth, a technique used by some Web sites to deliver one page to a search engine for indexing while serving an entirely different page to everyone else. There are opposing views as to whether or not cloaking is ethical. Opponents see it as a bait-and-switch, where a Web server is scripted to look out for search engines that are spidering in order to create an index of search results. The search engine thinks it is selecting a prime match to its request based on the meta tags that the site administrator has input. However, the search result is misleading because the meta tags do not correspond to what actually exists on the page. Some search engines, such as Lycos, Hotbot, and Excite, even ban cloaked Web sites. Proponents of cloaking assert that cloaking is necessary in order to protect the metadata, as only the spider is supplied with the meta tags.
