    Cloaking is the art of showing different content to different viewers.

    As you can tell from that simple definition, it can be used for good and it can also be used for even MORE good $$$.

    It's usually used to hide (cloak) affiliate links. You can use link shortened such as bitly or tinyurl (not recommended) to cloak or buy a domain and redirect it to your affiliate link.

    Cloaking is used for promoting offers which are against TOS.
    Cloaker directs reviewers to "clean" page/blog post and normal visitors to "dirty" offer/ad.

    Hi,
    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.

    In cloaking, the search engine and the user are literally not on the same page. Therefore, both the user and the search engine are being deceived.
