I am thinking about cloaking but have a few questions

Hi there,

I have been looking into cloaking/phantom pages for a few months and I think I would like to give it a try. I have a few questions:

1) Should the phantom domain that points to the real domain be on a different host than my real domain?

2) Has any one used (snip)? I know there are others some cheaper and much more expensive. Would anyone have any recommendations or can I even do this myself?

I know some people are strongly against cloaking, some are for it and some have mixed feelings. Ive done a bit of research and if the worst case scenario is that my phantom domain gets blocked by google... then I don't mind giving it a try.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld :)

1) Should the phantom domain that points to the real domain be on a different host than my real domain?

It depends on how paranoid you are. It certainly wouldn't hurt.

welcome to WebmasterWorld, kyle!

your reasons for cloaking are probably more important than the mechanism for doing so...

Hey Thanks everyone!

I am new to SEO but I am really loving it! I come from a design background but I am now realizing the web is more about SEO than just pretty pages.

I have been using cpc google ads, linking with blogs, and optimizing my pages but I think I may just take a risk and try the cloaking and see how it goes... fingers crossed.

Thanks again!
