Hi everyone,
I'm just getting into the whole cloaking/personalized delivery thing and have just got onto the subtopic of filler text (am I right in thinking filler refers to non-keyword text?).

I was hoping some of you guys could give me your opinions on its use in cloaked pages. For example, do you frown on its use? Do you actually make cloaked pages human readable even though they're not meant for human consumption or do you just stick a load of random text between your keyphrases?

Thanks in advance,
Eliot

Hi theboyduck (I like the name :) ),

I usually try to make them as if an actual client was going to read this pages. I think of it as spamming when your cloaked pages don't have any actual content that relates to the main pages. What happens when google takes your cloaked pages and caches them?

I would just try to stick with it as being actual content that clients will read.

My two cents.

Oh, Welcome to Webmasterworld.com :)

Hi circuitjump,
Thx for the warm welcome. That sounds right about using proper content, it just wouldn't sit easy with me producing pages which made no sense.
