I want to do something a little bit naughty. I want to have a webpage with hidden links on it - that is not detectable by a visitor to the webpage, but by the google search engine. I realise that there are associated risks (e.g. I may be blacklisted by google etc.) but I am willing to brunt them. I would be so grateful if people could chip in with possible strategies.
This doesn't really fall under the topic of cloaking, unless you intend to "cloak" the links by not even serving the link HTML to human visitors. That would be one strategy.
That of course is not a complete list. There are probably a lot of ways you could accomplish this. Some techniques are more dangerous than others, and some are more effective than others.
