    I'm wondering if there is a way to 100 percent cloak a link. I don't care if I can highlight the link on the page I just don't want any 1 visually to be able to see it. I have tried to see what can be done in the CSS but I'm not able to find any thing. Also please dont tell me to mask the link by simply changing it's color property I'm looking for no visual representation of the link on my page Ty

    The most common thing people do is change the color to match the background. You could set it to display:none; but I doubt you'd get juice from it. If you wanted to be technical you could use php to recognize the user agent and only show the link to bots, but that will definitely get you penalized.

    HTML:
    <a href="http://www.google.com" style="display:none;">Google</a>
    You could also cover it with a solid color div.
    Quick example (dirty code)
    HTML:
    <div><a href="http://www.google.com">Google</a></div>
    <div style="float:left; background-color:#ffffff; width:75px; position:relative; top:-20px;"> </div>
    Or move the link outside of the visible area:
    HTML:
    <a href="http://www.google.com" style="position:absolute; top:-20px;">Google</a>
    I never needed to hide a link so I'm not sure if any of these ideas actually work.


    Cheers!
