Cloaking is a technique used to deliver the content on a Web page to a search engine in a way that is different to what the user was looking for.

The purpose of cloaking is to boost a website’s search engine rank on certain keywords. Cloaking takes a user to the other sites than what he or she expects by disguising those sites’ true content.

Cloaking means you show one landing page to a certain percentage of the audience, and a different landing page to the rest.

Cloaking is a technique used to deliver the content on a Web page to a search engine in such a way that different content than what is delivered to a regular human user appears on the search engine. The goal of cloaking is to boost a website's search engine rank on certain keywords.

Cloaking is a search engine optimization (SEO) technique in which the content presented to the search engine spider is different from that presented to the user's browser. This is done by delivering content based on the IP addresses or the User-Agent HTTP header of the user requesting the page.

Cloaking refers to the practice of presenting different content or URLs to human users and search engines. Cloaking is considered a violation of Google's Webmaster Guidelines because it provides our users with different results than they expected.

Cloaking refers to the practice of presenting different content or URLs to human users and search engines. Inserting text or keywords into a page only when the user agent that's requesting the page is a search engine, not a human visitor.
