    it has 3 use in internet marketing, the 1st is what neonskull linked above and is related to SEO, the 2nd meaning can be also found on the same link and it's related to email marketing (ip address cloaking), the 3rd meaning is related to CPA marketing and basically it means changing the appearance of an url to hide the original and show something else instead

    but you put a surplus "c" in the word, it's not cloacking but cloaking, maybe that's why you couldn't find anything :)

    In a nutshell: You provide google and your real users with different content. Wich content to show depends on user's location, language for example

    Even by googling 'cloacking' you will get the answer. :D

    It is useful for affiliate marketers but problems might arise later on if the campaign owner doesn't acknowledge the lead.

    It depends on which plugin you use or how you hardcode your htaccess scripts.
