    A quick google search found this:
    "Cloaking is a search engine optimization (SEO) technique in which the content presented to the search engine spider is different from that presented to the user's browser. This is done by delivering content based on the IP addresses or the User-Agent HTTP header of the user requesting the page. When a user is identified as a search engine spider, a server-side script delivers a different version of the web page, one that contains content not present on the visible page, or that is present but not searchable. The purpose of cloaking is sometimes to deceive search engines so they display the page when it would not otherwise be displayed (black hat SEO). However, it can also be a functional (though antiquated) technique for informing search engines of content they would not otherwise be able to locate because it is embedded in non-textual containers such as video or certain Adobe Flash components."

    @Facebook Phone Number I think Cloaking in simplest terms is when a human/user reading a specific site would see a different content or information than what the Googlebot or other search engine robots would see when reading the same site.

    Just my basic understanding:
    Cloaking is when you see a link or ads that give you details about it, but when you click it,
    it will redirect you to sites or links different from you read in the details given.

    Cloaking is the method to bypass your content for a crawlers understanding.
    Otherwise it is known as doorway pages to make a different content visible to the user and the crawler for indexing your site.

    Cloaking is a technique used to deliver the content on a Web page to a search engine in such a way that different content than what is delivered to a regular human user appears on the search engine. The goal of cloaking is to boost a website's search engine rank on certain keywords.
    In cloaking, the search engine and the user are literally not on the same page. Therefore, both the user and the search engine are being deceived.

    All of these definitions are what I think cloaking is as well. But then I see all these posts about Tech Support cloaking and Affiiliate stuff and the use of JustCloakIt or Fraudbuster and I'm instantly confused. What is Tech Support cloaking?

    The above URL, looks like the domain is 'goo.gl', it looks like the link is from this domain. But if u click on this link-it takes you to a video which is on youtube, or say, it redirects you to a youtube link, to another domain. That's Link cloaking as far as I understand!

    I will try to explain it through 2 funny stories :

    1. There was a get together going on in a house, a salesman goes to a house and saw the beautiful girls and came back to his friend and told them about the girls in the house. When the friends went to the house, they found that there is no body in the house except two old folks.

    2. It can be described in other way too, suppose an old woman wants to meet younger men. What she does is that she sticks pictures of beautiful girls on her walls so that passengers would see them and think that the girl lives there. But when any guy comes to the house he finds someone else...

    I hope you got the point of cloaking... :)
