Continious cloaking help?

Ok most people here are (i asume) wanting to use cloaking to get themselves to the top of the SERPS in quick time?

that said, I'm factoring a shelf life into the equation for a domain which is heavily cloaked because no doubt it will be reported and banned in a matter of 1/2 months.

How then to get a new site back to the top?

Just get a few IBL's in again and wait to hit the top and get banned?...then repeat process?

Or do you keep a continual supply of fresh domains/sites in reserve which have IBL's?

With Google sandboxing links at moment, cloaking a site to rocket it to the top seems like a solution to those not prepared to wait.

Can anyone set me straight?

Cloaking is only a short term fix, what you need to do is be looking at the long term & what will it take.
And not at a short term fix and it's a waste of your time. I think most people here would agree that you should not use cloaking for SEO.

Only suggestion I would give you is to take it down and build a real content site for the long term, the real money is in the long term.

i've got a number of strategys in hand. all except a short fix strategy ;-)

The points above still stand about how to continiously cloak. There are obviously repeat cloakers as if you can get the top slots by using such methods, it will pay to continue to do so.

Please, I dont want to turn this into a merits of cloaking debate.

If there is anyone out there who can help please take pity on me and come to my aid ;-)

Cheers, Tom.

Something to keep in mind...

Cloaking is not a sure-fire way to "rocket you to the top" of search engine rankings. Actually the process of cloaking is meant to be a defensive mechanism to protect your optimized HTML from competitors.

Don't rely on cloaking to get good SERPs. It's only a tool in the toolbox, and a defensive tool, at that.
