After being on this board for less than a week I have decided that cloaking will be the only way I can compete with the big automotive sites.
And were you actually READING? I tend to doubt it. Cloaking is fast money at the cost of domain and link assets, but hardly 'the only way to compete'.
DUDE.... honestly, you need to read some more if that's your opinion. Cloaking is not for the uninformed.
Well, if you decide to put your business at risk, be careful what registar you use. Partnerships are alleged between google and a BIG registrar that I won't name here. A google search will turn it up ;)
affiliate partners so they will ban you too?
Well, Performics is OWNED by Google, so stay away on that front. Outside of that, I've found that you should just ask your affiliate partner if they care - some care a LOT, and some encourage affilate's cloaking, and some call you back a month later and ask... "well about that..."
