    This is a technique in which the content presented to the search engine spider/robot is different from that presented to the users browser. This is a “black hat” technique and is not advisable for any website.

    ok a simple example is Google.com

    when you're in UK or Australia, you get redirected to the localized version of .co.uk or co.au

    why because there is cloaking/DNS that picks your client IP and then pulls the cloaked version of google page

    i hope it helps

    Cloaking is all about making search engine fool by presenting different content what is showing to user. In cloaking technique targeted key word are written in website source page which is not visible to user but it visible to search engine. This method is applied get ranked well in ranking.

    Here's a simple example of how seo style cloaking works:

    You have a cloaked web page on your server. This 'web page' is actually a CGI script which reads the IP address of the requester. It compares the IP address of the requester against a list of IP addresses known to belong to search engine spiders. If a match is found, then the requester is identified as a search engine spider. If no match is found, the requester is identified as a 'human'.

    Cloaking is when websites serve one web page to search engine spiders and a different to human visitors. This can be used to mislead the search engine with regard to the content on the website. There are, however, some methods of cloaking which are not regarded as a deceptive, such as delivering unique content to users based on their location, or allowing search engines to index password protected pages...
