Why do i need cloaking if pages of my site are optimized for google.

Why show 1 page for visitors and different to google.

What should be in second page to get high rankings?
Only 1 keyword repeated as many times as possible or what?

Second, google now looks for links. How could cloaking help in this case?

Due to the fact that "off page" factors play a much larger role today in most search engine algorithms, cloaking or IP delivery has little or no advantage compared to a few years ago.

While content differences (On page factors), due differ between: Google/MSN/Inktomi(Yahoo), the weighting of on page factors in the SE's algo's is of much less importance now.

But i think it is great

for example to generate 100.000 pages )all optimized for different keywords) and show them all to search engins.

What do you think?

Or SE will penalize for this?

I think this topic is still open for debate.

One reason to cloak is to misdirect your competitors, who may be reverse-engineering your well-ranked page so they can hopefully rank right up there with you.

Great comment. This is the best way to cloak ... search engine traffic through cloaking will never be what it used to be due to off-page factors.

that isn't really cloaking

>> I think this topic is still open for debate.

very true, there are tons of uses for cloaking, doesn't have to only be SE's, I have to agree with redzone though that as far as ranking goes I can't see the benefit now.

It used to be great when there were 10 or so engines worth cloaking for and the on page differences were larger.
