I checked the keyword density of the highly ranked pages and found them to be exceedingly high in competitive keyword percentages with no extraneous words at all. I doubt if such a page would make for coherent reading. The pages that are actually served to joe surfer are very different.
I contacted google about this deceptive practice. To your knowlege does google usually look into such things if they are reported? And if google does, what would they do about it?
If you do get caught cloaking, expect one of the more severe penalties that SEs can apply.
Before you take the risks, you better prove to yourself that the monetary reward of cloaking is worth it.
If it's really worth the risk, find a professional firm to do it for you -- prepare to pay out the nose for it.
Ugly subject for me, so I will not be responding on this subject anymore.
GG stated in an earlier posting that this is usually the case although it would be nice to see these filters working properly.
I know of one company that has over 200 keyword domains listed in Google all interlinked and with the same content plus one or two more companies which use cloaking and hidden text/links.
The sooner the filters find and remove them the better
I will say this, I have made tons of pages for the search engines on my keywords, and when people click the link, they show up at the URL, no cloaking.
I personally think this is 100 times better. First off the title and H1 is exactly what they typed in, 2nd it just takes a little effort and time to do, and you have no chance of getting removed from the index for making a real page.
Now to your question I have reported alot of cloaked pages as Im seeing them more and more, still there.... I just optimize my REAL pages better then their cloaked pages and walah......no worries, and I still beat them.
If it's not a single site you are talking about then I would say best of luck. HTH :)
I also want my static page to rank right underneath my index page for the keyword phrase i am using. The static page is real and built for the users to land on but i would rather they avoid the page if they already landed on my index page, so i used the Event Handler to move them directly into my shopping cart pages. This also keeps my pages interlinked directly from my index page whihc hopefully should rank high.
