Cloaking Software

I see tons of cloaking software out there. For those who would rather have a software program do it for them, are there any reliable, easy to use programs?

We don't discuss the merits or drawbacks of particular software packages here. You can check the ODP category for cloaking here: [dmoz.org...]

So there is no way to get real user feedback for the software programs that are out there? Can people at least sticky me with info?

There are other forums that might have discussions like that. We avoid them to help stop those who would use this forum to promote their products. We try to keep WebmasterWorld a "spam-free zone".

I totally hear where you're coming from. However in other forums at WebmasterWorld people are always providing links and opinions on software like bloggers, content management systems, forum software, directory software etc.

See the charter [webmasterworld.com] of the Cloaking forum:

While we will not engage in product evaluations, questions regarding generic features of cloaking without reference to specific products are acceptable.

While I wouldn't mind steering people towards certain unnamed software packages, I keep those kinds of comments to myself. I'm pretty much a stickler in this forum to keep discussion generic.

To be totally honest. I would love to learn more techniques in safe and ethical cloaking technologies.
If anyone has a tip or two, it would be much appreciated. How many clients want to know why a site does not do so well on said search engine yet does well on another? Too many.

Almost every cloaking script out there does the same thing. All that they do that is different is charge a smaller or higher fee.

If you're serious about cloaking, first you'll need to understand cloaking in general, and I'd advise you NOT to use it on your primary sites. I wrote an article/post on it, so search my username and you'll probably find it. It maps out what you should and should not do when setting up a cloaking script. The last thing you need is to get banned for getting greedy and adding the script to your primary domain.
