Just as a refresher, cloaking keywords merely involves finding more and more natural ways for your keywords to appear in your articles.The device makes objects invisible to sound waves. Acoustic cloaking was theoretically in 2008 but no exists. Barrowing many ideas from attempts to "cloak" objects from light and using simple plastic sheets with arrays of holes.

Cloaking is the search engine optimization technique used by some Web sites to deliver one page to a search engine spider for indexing while serving an entirely different page to human beings. It means it is the techniques where content see to the search engine spider is different from that see to the user's browser.

It is not good for SEO because it is a black hat SEO technique.

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.

Cloaking is the masking of the sender's name and address in an e-mail note or distribution. An individual or company that sends spam or, as they prefer to call it, "bulk e-mail" usually conceals their own e-mail address for various reasons, including the possibility that someone will swamp the originator's own e-mail server with retributional spam.

According to me, cloaking is way to boost a pagerank by making search engine fool to showing a different page to the crawler. The duplicate page is full of rich keywords and content to get the pagerank up and to generate the traffic to the website. There are many types of cloaking such as JavaScript Cloaking, IP address Cloaking, User-Agent Cloaking.

About Cloaking we can say a human reading the site would see different content or information than the Googlebot or other search engine robot reading the site. This technique is use to improve search engine ranking by misleading the search engine robot into thinking the content on the page is different than it really is.

"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. When a user is identified as a search engine spider, a server-side script delivers a different version of the web page, one that contains content not present on the visible page, or that is present but not searchable. The purpose of cloaking is sometimes to deceive search engines so they display the page when it would not otherwise be displayed (black hat SEO). However, it can also be a functional (though antiquated) technique for informing search engines of content they would not otherwise be able to locate because it is embedded in non-textual containers such as video or certain Adobe Flash components."

The practice of serving different content to search engines than real human visitors are likely to see through normal Web browsing. The intent behind the cloaking may be deceptive or language-related or related to accessibility. Some forms of simple cloaking are accepted by the search engines.
