    First off, long time visitor on BHW but first time member =) just got a question for those cloaking gurus.

    So lets say I have a landing page. On that landing page if a visitor comes from x,y,x referral it will show certain content to show certain ads. But if a user doesn't come from x,y,z referral it will show the safe landing page.

    Can scan bots etc. detect this?

    Thanks

    Only if they do a double take on your website. One with the forwarding header coming from your target referral, the other without. The chance of discovery seems pretty slim to me.

    Yes, cloaking which is only based on HTTP referrer is guaranteed to be a failure.

    You need advance cloaker like BlackJack's JCI, Traffic Armor or Fraudbuster.

    How do the advanced cloakers work in comparison to the cheaper ones? I was actually looking at SuprCloakr to try a similar strategy as the OP. I realize the referring sites will get deindexed but I'm hoping only occasionally.

    It's so simple to test them. Just sign up for them and cloak, you'll get banned faster with cloakers which don't work.

    Ha! That's very true. I'm going to check the ones you've mentioned and see if I can afford one yet.
