what is cloaking ?

i heard that Search engines find one page but the end users end up visiting another site.
how does this work Question

There are a couple of meanings.

In terms of a URL, cloaking can be used to give you a memorable address. For example, if you have a long url for your homepage (something like http://users.someisp.com/webspace/user/~you/index.html) it's often difficult to distribute your address. Therefore, you could buy a domain name like http://mysite.com that automatically redirects the users to your long url. The domain (http://mysite.com) will stay in the address bar as long as you are following links from within that site, and this is described as "cloaking".

Cloaking can also mean anonymous web surfing (ie. hiding your IP address) but I don't think this is waht you mean. You can see an example of it at http://www.the-cloak.com

Hope this answers your question!

Is often something like this
Code:

<html><head>
<title>BLABLABLA</title>
<META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
</head>

<frameset rows="100%,*" frameborder="NO" border="0" framespacing="0">
<frame src="http://long site name .com / user / and / so / on">
</frameset>
<noframes>
<body>
No frames enabled
</body>
</noframes>
</html>


Only the frame page will be showed. Because the page is in a frame Wink
