So, does anyone else have an opinion on the question of cloaking?
Would it be considered cloaking to serve a different image to google.com/imgres when it hotlinks the full version of the image?
It would be easy to do in .htaccess, and could be used to display a copyright notice watermark or some other message to discourage users from using the image directly from Google instead of actually visiting the site.
But do you think it would be penalized?
