Yeah, why on earth risking it all by cloaking for Google and having your page archived in their cache for everyone to see or used the noarchive tag and tell the world that you are cloaking while in fact what Google wants is links pointing at your site here to boost your PR and ranking position?

After all, if you cloak and have no links pointing to your site (even if you have the best "on the page" optimized code) you will get beat by the next Joe coming up with 10 links pointing at it's site without having no cloaking script at all or even some basic knowledge of what SEO means with some good optimized code on it's page...right guys?

In fact, i am cloaking for Google but i'm giving Googlebot the same page as the browser version since i have over 4000+ IBLs i should be the competition hands down.

Just my 2 cents,


P.s: How do you edit the @#$% post Titles on this site!

How do you edit the ..... post Titles on this site!

You can't, but I think a mod can.

Posting duplicate content in multiple posts is frowned up within the forums. Perhaps you'd like to read the TOS [webmasterworld.com]. :)

I agree: Cloaking is only for the very experinced and dedicated.
