    Cloaking refers to the practice of presenting different content or URLs to users and search engines.

    Just Google it.

    It's a black hat SEO technique for search engine's spider. But can be harmful to the site.

    coming from a PPC background, cloaker is used for something completely different..
    Let's say you want to promote weight loss on Facebook Ads... which isnt allowed ofcourse lol
    You create ad copy, create safe page, and money page behind the cloaker...

    The idea is to send all Facebook bots and reviewers (employees of FB) to safe page (which is white hat), and send normal people that came from your Ad to money page...

    Cloaker just protects your money page so you don't get instant ban :)

    Cloaking is a black hat technique it seems like it would be harmful to your website in the same time it is a earning money technique. There is a chance to rank higher based on your niche sites and your strong keywords.

    It is nearly based on your link building techniques how to rank your websites.

    Cloaking means delivering different contents to search engine and users.
    If you have used any black hat techniques means, it can be easily identified by the crawler while crawling.
    So,with the help of cloaking we can hide those stuffs from the crawler.
