Cloaking is a black hat technique. It refers to the practice of presenting different content or URLs to users and search engines. one process includes deceiving users to see a certain url that appears too long and when clicked it redirects to another location without the user knowing it.

"Cloaking is a search engine optimization (SEO) technique in which the content presented to the search engine spider is different from that presented to the user's browser. This is done by delivering content based on the IP addresses or the User-Agent HTTP header of the user requesting the page. When a user is identified as a search engine spider, a server-side script delivers a different version of the web page, one that contains content not present on the visible page, or that is present but not searchable. The purpose of cloaking is sometimes to deceive search engines so they display the page when it would not otherwise be displayed (black hat SEO). However, it can also be a functional  technique for informing search engines of content they would not otherwise be able to locate because it is embedded in non-textual containers such as video or certain Adobe Flash components."

Cloaking is a way of hiding one after another by putting text the same color as the background color, thus invisible to the human eye but readable by search engine. This will make high-level fast, but very little time. The search engines is set for a review, and you risk the possibility of getting banned from SERPs.

According to Google cloaking is "a website that returns altered webpages to search engines crawling the site." In other words, a human reading the site would see different content or information than the Googlebot or other search engine robot reading the site. Most of the time, cloaking is implemented in order to improve search engine ranking by misleading the search engine robot into thinking the content on the page is different than it really is.

As per my info, cloaking is way to boost a pagerank by making search engine fool to showing a different page to the crawler. The duplicate page is full of rich keywords and content to get the pagerank up and to generate the traffic to the website. There are many types of cloaking such as JavaScript Cloaking, IP address Cloaking, User-Agent Cloaking.

Cloaking is not something I recommend webmasters to use, it is a black hat SEO technique.

If you get caught, your sites can get penalized by search engines.
