    A website that uses cloaking recognizes search engine spiders by their IP address. It returns web pages to search engine spiders that are different from the web pages that web surfers see. Usually, the cloaking software creates hundreds of web pages that are optimized for a special search term so that search engine spiders get the impression that the website contains a lot of relevant information about a special topic.

    Feeding content to a user based on what part of the world they come from is a form of cloaking.

    Cloaking is representing your website in a search engine in one manner but showing users a different content. You are trying to hide information typically. You should not do cloaking, SEO and cloaking do not go together unless you are talking about black hat techniques.

    Do not use cloaking while doing seo for your website. Cloaking is a spam or say a black hat technique in the world of search engine optimization. Cloaking is a black hat seo technique used by some websites to show or feel and look one page to a search engine for indexing while serving an entirely different page for everyone else (visitors and users).

    Always we need to follow the google webmaster guidelines in order to getting banned by them. Clocking is one of the black hat techniques used nowadays for achieving high ranking in SERP. Need to avoid these kind of techniques.

    Cloaking is when you show one version of a website to Google and another to your visitors. The intention is to trick Google into thinking your site is better than it actually is. However, this is a black hat technique and to achieve it successfully you need to understand many things because itís not easy to trick Google.
