Hi all,

I am new to cloaking.. i want to know about search engine based cloaking tactics.. In my search, i got a site which is top ranking for more than 10 keywords which is most competitive in google , yahoo and msn.

What is the algorithm used in that cloaking for diffrent search engine.. i am getting different description while searching that site in the each search engines..

But I looked up in the "cached" page i am getting same content as what is available in normal view..

How can i do like this.. suppose if i do like this search engine will ignore my site?

It might be cloaking, then again it might not be. SERP descriptions aren't always taken from on-page factors. Many times they are taken from link text pointing to the site, or from text nearby the link.

Yahoo may be using your meta description. Google may have a differnt description for every search you do.
