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.

Cloaking occurs when a URL displays different content based on who’s looking — a human or a web crawler. The viewer’s IP address gives this away, and the server delivers the content accordingly.

Cloaking is a form of spamdexing — a mix of indexing and SEO spamming. This type of SEO strategy fools a search engine into thinking that a page’s content is more valuable to users than it really is. Consequently, users like you and me find ourselves on low-quality pages that don’t answer the questions we were asking.

Cloaking in SEO is a search engine optimization technique using which the content that is made available to the target audience and that given to a search engine bot, crawler or spider is different. The content is made differently in order to increase the search engine ranking by the way of manipulation. Mostly, this practice is categorized under black hat techniques. The main use of this technique is to distort the search engine rankings in the favor of the target website or web page for which the seo project is run.
