Cloaking Forum

What happens when you are caught
If a cloaked page is reported / penalized

I am just learning about Cloaking and this forum is excellent.

If you are cloaking on a "throw-away" domain to redirect to a "money" site -- and the throw away gets burnt - does this have any effect on the money site (penalty, etc)?

Or do you just keep putting up new throw-aways?

New throw aways.

So are there any issues / penalties "left" on the page you are redirecting to?

If the engines were to penalize the page you were redirecting the throwaways too, what would prevent your competition from getting your sie banned using a few throwaways and simply pointing it at you?

You have no control over who is redirecting to your site. The engines definitely aren't blind to that in most instances.

You never know what the future holds.

I have never heard of a primary site being punished for a "throwaway" site sending human traffic to the primary site. I won't say it will never happen, but it would be difficult to implement without a lot of innocent sites getting hurt, as mentioned above.
