DO NOT USE AGENT CLOAKING. BAD IDEA!!! You'll be caught using agent cloaking. Agent cloaking can be caught EASILY by a search engine and google and other search engines doing beta testing on catching agent cloaking scripts will be caught. Use DNS and IP's ONLY. One other reason why you do not want to do this is I could fake my agent EASILY and catch your cloaked site giving away your cloaked pages and also leaving you very wide open to report by both editors and searchers. If you're using agents to filter, stop. You wouldn't believe the logs I have for spider traps and search engines are changing agents/not using agent names at all to check out sites. I programmed my cloaking script in php and used only ip segments and dns. Most search engines own entire ip segments, but the main thing you need is not agents it's dns. most all search engines carry the same dns and if they don't keep your spider trap being submitted monthly.
