    Hi all,

    Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I'm new to SEO and just came across this topic because it sounded kinda cool. Although I'm pretty sure this is some pretty advanced stuff I shouldn't be reading yet.

    Can someone explain to me a simple use-case of cloaking. I'm assuming it's hiding the website from bots but I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around when people use it etc.

    Thanks in advanced!

    An example of when you would use cloaking is when you are running offers that are against the T&C's of the advertising network . For example you want to run a diet/adult offer on FB/Google . When you submit your campaign you would send FB's reviewers and bots to your nice clean lander/website and Joe public to your aggressive celebrity endorsed diet/adult lander . It can get a lot more interesting/complicated dependent on how far you want to go down the rabbit hole . Use the search function as you will find that the majority of questions you have will have been asked and answered many times before .

    Ah I see, so I'm guessing this is more so for PPC. Thanks oscarboy, I'll have a further search for more content on it.
