    I have been noticing threads who are asking about What is Cloaking and why do we use Cloaking Services in order to do Affiliate Marketing...

    I decided to compile some data related to Cloaking so members can take advantage in one GO from this thread and get the basic idea about it.

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

    Here are some scenarios where you might want to cloak:

    Banned Offers

    Want to run an offer that’s banned on a traffic source? Lets use Bing as an example traffic source, and health supplement as the offer.

    You can’t show the reviewers the supplement landing page because you’ll get banned, so instead the cloaker will detect if someone is working for Microsoft, and it sends them to another page of your choosing. You can send to any page, but we’ll go with an Health Related Association Website. However, the cloaker sends your real targeted prospect when he/she clicks on an ad to your “real” landing page which is your affiliate offer in Health Supplement Industry.

    Banned Landing Page Techniques:

    Perhaps you want to get really aggressive with your landing page to increase your conversion rates. Maybe techniques such as exit pops or GEOIP scripts are not allowed so cloaking the reviewers can send them to an alternative page instead.

    How Do Cloakers Work?
    Each cloaker has their own technology and some work better than others. Here are some of the basic methods they use.

    • IP Collection – The software has a database of the IP addresses of the reviewers. This can be as simple as launching a campaign, pausing it, and recording any IP’s that visit the page.
    • Referral URL’s – If someone is coming from dev.facebook.com, it’s probably a reviewer.
    • GeoIP – This method is quite simple. If you’re running traffic in Italy, then only allow traffic from Italy. Sometimes the traffic source reviewers are in UK or USA, and they’re not going to be able to see your page unless they have an Italian IP address.
    • Ban the city – Does the traffic source only have reviewers based in Montreal, Canada? Then they can just block any visitors from Montreal.

    The Downsides of Cloaking
    • Expensive – Some cloakers want you to pay a one time registration fees plus a monthly fees will also apply which normally starts from $197 and go over $1000...
    • Bleed Rate – The cloakers are NOT perfect. You’re going to have “legit” visitors that the cloaker will mistaken as a reviewer. The bleedrate can be as high as 15%. If your campaign is spending $1,000 a day, that means it’s possible that you’ll lose $150 a day because of the cloaker. Is your campaign profitable enough to handle that?
    • Losing Your Accounts – A common situation with using Cloakers is you always carry a risk of getting BANNED because ADVERTISING platforms are continuously building systems and training their reviewers to go through in deep whether the campaign you are running have cloaking set up or not.

    hi i want to ask, does facebook ads eventually has a person from FB team to review our ads? Will they try our destination url in the ads itself? cloaking normally can bypass only bots, so after it is approved by facebook bots, it will review manually by a person after that, right?

    Manual review is a common practice on Facebook , Adwords and on Bing. The best approach when you are doing cloaking is to let your campaign have few impressions like 500 until you make the campaign go LIVE. In cloakers there is an option to set campaign to "Active" "Block All" or Accept all"
