I am just trying to figure this out. I found some stuff the other day and was hoping it could be explained. If something I say doesnt make sense please excuse because I have been up late a few nights trying to figure it out.
If you do a search for <snip> and <snip> you get some really weird results. Long story how I stumbled on it but I thought it was well different. At first I thought it might be a sneaky redirect thing but I couldn’t find the code like matt had listed in one of his examples. Besides it isnt gibberish though the text changes everytime you reload the page. I notice there is no cache option and the domain shown in the search results doesnt appear anywhere on the actual page. Its loaded with google ads. Ill give you gurus an example of the results.
<snip> and <snip>
I added the extra peroids of course since not sure if there is a rule against urls here.. Im still learning this stuff.. what is this? good bad otherwise? clever? is it a google thing?

Welcome to WebmasterWorld consaka1 :) We don't allow the "outing" of cloaked sites in this forum, so i had to snip the URLs and search keywords out of your post.

What you describe might be cloaked, but I doubt it. It's definitely spam.

Contrary to popular belief, spammy webpages are perfectly legal. They're legal, but searh engines try not to include them.

Oh ok.. thanks. Soo who invented the term "outing"? whats it mean and where did it come from?

Hehe I don't know who invented the term "outing". Here it means exposing the website of someone suspected of cloaking.
