Hello,

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.

Thanks,

Cloaking is showing different content to users than GoogleBot.It can be done by
1>IP-delivery( Delivering different content based on the IP address of the requesting web browser or search engine spider.)
2>User-agent (Delivering different content based on the User-agent of the requesting web browser or search engine spider.)
3>JavaScript redirects

Clocking is Black Hat Technique . It Shows The Idiom "Elephant has two set of teeth-one to show off and the other to chew with" What you see is not necessarily true .
The Same is With Website Content Which Appears for Visitors and Search engines is Different 'presenting differing things to the Bot and the visitors' .This Can be Done with Scripting techniques .

If you happen to be a savvy online entrepreneur, you already know the power of using a solid redirect and link cloaking software to help you maximize your affiliate commission payouts. But what most people don't realize is that there is so much more you can do with the right software than just cloak an affiliate link.

Cloaking generally means to present different version of web page contents from of search engines to search robots and human visitors based on their browser's user agent or IP address. It's a deceptive method used to cheat search engines in order to rank well for desired keywords.

Also known as the Cloaking Black Hat Technique, which is practically similar to website content that appears different to visitors and to the bot.

Cloaking is a term given to a website that shows different WebPages to search engines that is crawling the site.
In simple words, in this practice a human would see some different information or content than the Googlebots or other search engine robot reading the website.
It is nothing but trying to mislead Google or other search engines thereby showing different content to them in order to improve website ranking.

Not always but in most of the cases, cloaking is also used to trick users to visit certain websites based on their description in search engines. For example a user searching for some product may click on a website in search engine based on its description and title but the final website will not be the one described in SERP’s. It will be a totally different one. Therefore, these practices that are designed to manipulate search engines and deceive users by directing them to sites other than the ones they selected, and that provide content solely for the benefit of search engines should be avoided.

Cloaking refers to the practice of presenting different content or URLs to users and search engines. Serving up different results based on user agent may cause your site to be perceived as deceptive and removed from the Google index. If the file that Googlebot sees is not identical to the file that a typical user sees, then you’re in a high-risk category…
