Recent Google update- any effects on Cloaked sites?

Anyone feel ongoing Google Algo tweaks will hit cloaking?

I just read:

[webmasterworld.com...]

And...

[webmasterworld.com...]

Wondering if any of you feel the algo tweaks that are coming or will be coming into play on Google will effect cloaked sites?

Domain farms and cloaking. Things that make ya go "Hmmmm...."

Not sure what you are fishing for, but I can't see how 'cloaked sites' would get any more / less rankings with the current changes from the reading I've been doing (research papers on fuzzy logic, etc :) )

Was there anything more specific you were looking for?

Yeah- in general, if folks noticed bots changing IP's or anything out of the ordinary from Google in order to catch cloaked sites.

I mean Selective Content Delivery Systems. :)

I found a deep page where I had tried the fantomaster method of hiding meta tags from specific browsers, which doesn't stop SEs from seeing it. Anyway, noticed it is PR0. I don't know if it ever had a high PR or not, but I've removed that code.

In general I cannot see any punishing for cloaked pages.

Have one big cloaked site that hasn't been picked up by the Gbot recently which is very strange.

Lots of my other cloaked sites have though so maybe this was just a glitch or I forgot to press the <play> button...

(Am using TCD - Targeted Content Delivery via IP & UA)
