Cloaking Your Site to Google

Cloaking Your Site to Google

As I continue to work in the SEO industry, I keep learning more and more. Something that I hadn’t really considered much in recent years is Cloaking.

Cloaking is a term that is used in the SEO world as hiding the actual real page that users see to Google. This was a¬†prevalent issue a few years ago when you might be searching for a local salon, and would end up opening up a page that is full of porn. Other industries started to adapt this as well, and since then Google has put their foot down. Our good friend Matt Cutts just built a video explaining in a little more detail what exactly cloaking is, and what Google’s stance is on this. ¬†It does get a little technical, but I share this video mostly just to help you understand what exactly cloaking is and how we can prevent it.

It is fairly simple to understand once you have a visual like what Matt is sharing here. But if you have any other questions about it please call and talk to us, or shoot me a message or email. Thanks for reading!
