Cloaked pages

Should you create links to cloaked pages and from cloaked pages? On the one hand you need the links ( or do you) on the other, anything that might point to a cloaked page of mine would make me feel instinctively nervous. In other words are cloaked pages so powerful that they don't need reciprical linking?

Rayjam, there isn't anything inherently "powerful" in a cloaked page. It is just like any other page, except that (if everything works!) the cloaked version is seen by robots only. As such, cloaked pages benefit from linkage, site theme, and all the other factors that go into ranking. Cross-linking cloaked pages shouldn't be a problem. If your cloaking system uses a naming scheme, though, just be sure that you keep your names and links straight.

As one who is relatively new to cloaking can you explain a little about naming schemes?

Sorry, got carried away. I am moving this question to cloaking section
