What Is Cloaking and Should I Do It?

As you can see, proper SEO strategies, commonly referred to as ‘“white hat” strategies, are time consuming. I quickly found that keeping up with it would require more work than I was willing to do. Like I said, I’m ex­tremely lazy, and I don’t want to spend my time tweaking everything to see what the results are. So, that is why I sold creditprovide.com. That is also why I don’t really bother with white hat strategies anymore. I’ve moved on to “black hat” strategies such as “cloaking”.


So What Is Cloaking?

Cloaking is frowned upon by most webmasters, except for the ones who do it and make a lot of money like me. I can’t list my cloaked websites here, because some jealous idiot would report me and get my sites banned. But, I will tell you the easiest way for a lazy person to get a good ranking, is by cloaking. Cloaking involves showing a keyword rich, highly optimized webpage to search engines, but a normal page to hu­man visitors.

It’s important to note that highly technical webmasters can and will report cloaked websites and get them banned. That is why:  1 You should always cloak on a throw away domain that you don’t care about, and have it redirect people to your true website. I advise having up to ten throw away domains at any time pointing to your true page.  2 You shouldn’t cloak for highly competitive keywords because your cloaked site will be reported quickly. If you cloak on a throw away domain and use good keywords that get a medium amount of searches, you should be able to fly below the radar. Search engines like Google will only ban cloaked domains, but not the sites they redirect to, EVER. 


Final Cloaking Verdict

So your true domain will always remain safe. This is because Google knows your competitors would be able to easily get you banned if they punished the site that was redirected to. If this all sounds confusing, that’s okay, because there is software out there that handles cloaking for you. I prefer a pretty expensive one ($2,480), called Fantomaster. I have used it very successfully. The creator, Dirk Brockhausen, is extremely helpful and provides free support for life. If you have no idea how to cloak or use his in depth program, you can pay him a small fee to set up a cloaked domain for you. The only cheaper software I’ve found that I like is Search Engine Cloaker. If your still stuck with cloaking, consider purchasing my Google Caffeine ebook on my older post!


I’ve tried many of the other cheap ones and found that they are practically useless. There is also a cloaking forum on www.webmasterworld.com where you can ask people which software works best for them.
