    Home Page:
    it's unique. it's seo optimized. spelling is 100% correct. it's related to the domain.

    but it doesn't make sense to readers. the sentences might be gramarically correct, but they aren't logically placed (like spitting out random facts related to the title).

    will this fit in with google? or will the spiders see right through it.

    Yes, of course you can. And I suggest you that as soon as you rank 1 . spent some money on adding good reading articles.

    that's exactly how you do it, rank with rubbish and once you get where you want to, make SENSE to your readers!

    It works but don't change it (if you rank high), a better strategy would be to cloak that page with a good landing page (pre-sell, opt-in or a real copy)

    Sure, you can get it to rank...until someone sends Google a spam report on it.

    Or, if it begins ranking for really important keywords, it may eventually be looked at by one of Google's manual reviewers, and then the party will be over.

    So, as an answer to your question: yes, you can get something like that to rank...but probably not for long...

    Is there a free way to cloak your page? When I look at the cloaking section of this forum, they're always talking about expensive software like wpcloaker. I take English content and translate it to dutch, but of course these sentences dont make sense... So I would like to know a way to redirect a page as soon as a visitor enters the site.

    Something like this will work, all you need to do is to add more ips and user agents

    PHP:
    if( preg_match '~(google|ask\.|yahoo\.|bing\.)~',  $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER']) ) { // checking referer
        
    if( preg_match '~(87\.118\.|66\.249\.|216\.239\.|67\.195\.)~',  $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']) ) {  // checking if the ip is from the search engine
            
    header('Location: http://www.cloak_pagers.com');
         } else {
            
    header('Location: http://www.your_real_page.com');
         }

    } else { 
    // if traffic is not from the search engine we redirect to our real page
            
    header('Location: http://www.your_real_page.com');
    }

    Where in WP would you place that code? And isn't it dangerous to use that (if google finds out...)?

    You can create an .htaccess file with rewrite rule which redirect all requests to the cloaking script I posted earlier. The script will then decide which page to render.

    PHP:
    options all
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteBase 
    /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond 
    %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule php 
    /your php page [L]
    If you have a good list of ips SE will not find out but this is important, if you don't understand what .htaccess is, and the whole concept of cloaking please don't mess with it.
