Cloaking Still Active and effective?
Should I use Cloaking

Hello everyone.

Forgive me as I am new here but I have been on the web looking for ways to catch up with my competition. So far I've found this cloaking idea to be of some merit. I keep reading that I should have a throw away domain for its use. My problem is my content (automotive) is soooo competitive it's even difficult to secure affiliate programs. That said I know it would be hard to find new affiliate programs once I burned the others up.

I've read that cloaking will only last a few months "if you're blessed" and you should move onto the next product/sight. My domain name has been registered since 1998 and I really don't want to mess that up by being banned. Do any of you have some ideas on how to avoid the worst case scenarios?

Hi automan1500 and welcome to WebmasterWorld :)

You don't need to switch products/affiliate programs if a domain is banned/penalized. You can simply start a new domain promoting the same product/affiliate deal.

Remember that cloaking is mostly a tool to be used defensively -- to keep competitors from reverse engineering your rankings. Many people also use commercial cloaking software as doorway generators/content creators, as well though, but doorways can be generated without cloaking.
