Some blog directories make you add one of their links into your site in exchange for listing your blog in their directory. The problem I have with this is that their links are hideous and make my page look unprofessional. I have only read generally what cloaking is, so I have a basic understanding. Emphasis on basic! I guess what I want to do is hide the link from users, but show it to crawlers (assuming that's how they know it's on my site). Sort of like reverse cloaking I guess. Or, if possible, it would be best to hide it from Gs crawlers, and the users but allow the blog directory to see that it's on there. Is this possible, any advice, helpful links, etc.?
