    In simple terms, Cloaking means that the webpage delivered or shown to a user is different from the search engine robots. It is Black Hat SEO and anyone should don't use this.

    Cloaking is often used as a SPAMInDEXING technique to try to trick search engines into giving the relevant site a higher ranking. By the same method, it can also be used to trick search engine users into visiting a site that is substantially different from the search engine description, including delivering X rated content cloaked within non-pornographic search results.

    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.

    Cloaking is a SEO (Search Engine Optimization) technique. Basically it's about presenting the crawler of search engines a different website than normal users. Clocking is showing the search engine one thing and your visitors another. This method is treated as spam and is not recommended to use.

    Cloaking means presenting differing things to the Bot and the visitors. Showing few content to the visitors and letting the crawlers to see more content than visible by the actual visitor by some programming or scripting techniques is called cloaking. noscript tag also included in such technique.
