This letter may upset you. Honestly, you may not even want to read it... Why?
Because for years the gurus have been telling you one thing and then doing another! And a lot of it you won't like - not one bit. See... some of the top and most visible personalities in the internet marketing world have a little secret.
Cloaking has always been regarded as the best black hat, grey hat, and yes -- even white hat way to drive traffic to your offers. Cloaking is used by corporations big and small (like the New York Times) and by some of the top internet marketers around like Stephen Pierce and Rich Shefren.
That's right -- that Rich Shefren.
Stephen sold his "SmartpageSecrets" product for $495 back in 2004. They key to it?
Rich later did a seminar with Stephen focusing mainly on cloaking and redirecting.

Using The Wrong Cloaking Tools Can Get You Shut Down Faster Than You Can Spell G-O-O-G-L-E
Cloaking applications are expensive. Sure, you can buy a junk script for $27 from somewhere or you can pay a little more on rentacoder.com and get *something* built...
But do you know what to ask for?
So how the hell do you expect to get an industrial strength script if you don't know about the technology? Let's face it, with software of any kind it is "garbage in, garbage out". If you can't write the requirements and your programmer isn't skilled in that area you have no chance.
Here is a list of the best commercial cloaking applications from back in the day:
- Search Engine Cloaker
- John Heard's Food Script
All these scripts were expensive to get an unlimited domain license and all the needed plugins to do it right. Expect to drop a grand or more. Actually, with some of these you were looking at $3000 or a monthly multi-hundred dollar fee! Now, to be honest, $1000 was a drop in the bucket compared to what these scripts could do for you during the height of the Adsense and CPA arbitrage craze.
Today, all of these are history. They're either shut down, sold off for parts, or still relying on old technology that no longer cuts it. Bottom line -- you use one of these and you're SOL. (OK, that was a little harsh. You can use these older scripts with foreign search engines quite effectively. But that's probably not why you're here is it?
Cloaking is different today. The focus is on cloaking paid traffic, not organic search engine results traffic (SEO). Ad networks and search engines use partners, reviewers, and shadow bots to check up on you and all their "customers". It's a different game -- and the list of cloaking services that fight the good fight is mighty small:
- wpCloaker (you're here!)
- Just Cloak It
- NoIP Fraud
Now, I am sure there are others. But these three all have active support desks, customers, and constantly analyze traffic to identify new fingerprints to support new ad networks and engines.
(And I hope you just noticed a HISTORIC event -- when have you ever seen a salesletter talk about the competition and tell someone what other great solutiosn there are out there?)
How To Use Cloaking To Unlock A Treasure Chest Of Targeted Traffic To Your Offers And Money Pages
What's cloaking all about? At the end of the day... traffic.
Cloaking Paid Traffic & Offers
Facebook keeps cracking down on their landing page rules and which niches they want to restrict. The bottom line is that it is nearly impossible these days to run a dating offer in the US. Advertorials were all the rage 12-18 months ago and now they get you slapped faster than you can imagine. Direct linking is bad on Google Adwords, sometimes allowed on Bing Ads, and increasingly problematic in Facebook...
Cloaking is an aggressive way to deal with the ad networks. You show the ad networks a *compliant* landing page that completely passes their TOS, but you show your real visitors you high converting landing page. Or you go direct to offer (direct link). Doesn't matter if you're promoting supplements or pepper spray.
The search engines see one thing - content.
Your real visitor sees another - the offer.
Cloaking Organic Search Traffic (SEO)
Google keeps cracking down on affiliate sites and pages they consider "bridge" pages to the actual vendor offer. This includes datafeed pages and opt-in squeeze pages and even pages promoting eBay and Amazon products that have unique content on them.
Cloaking is an aggressive way to deal with the search engines. You show the search engines all the content they want, but you show your visitors your money making offers. Doesn't matter if you're selling treadmills or how to treat man boobs cream.
The search engines see one thing - content.
Your real visitor sees another - the offer.
Here Are 3 Simple Ways Cloaking Gets You
Traffic And Helps Make You More Money
1. Skirt Those Pesky "Terms of Service"
You've been running a great supplement campaign for 6 months on FB...
and then you get a letter...
After six months of crushing it, Facebook is telling you that your campaign is suspended because your landing page violates their new terms of service.
Advertorials are a no-no now despite the fact that the 50-59 yr old grandmas you've been targeting love your copy.
What do you do? Three things...
- Build a new COMPLIANT landing page
- Test it for conversions (don't be surprised if it sucks)
- Cloak the new compliant page to the old converting-like-bat-s!@#-page
2. Humans Go Direct To Offer
Human visitors come to your blog and they see content from your landing page.
This is an offer -- a way to make money. I don't care if it is an affiliate site, your own landing page, an ecommerce store.. whatever. The visitor goes right to the MONEY PAGE. There is no article content to read with the hopes and prayers that they'll click on a freakin link. Send them right to your squeeze page or offer.
A search engine spider comes to the same page and they see an article. Or the same content without the squeeze offer or your affiliate links (since Google doesn't like thin affiliates).
NOTE: this works the SAME for paid traffic as well! Wanna potentially explode conversions? Test sending your paid traffic direct to offer (via cloaking) against sending them to your low-key content marketing article. You might be shocked to see which one converts better.
3. Fixing What The Search Engines Give You
Sometimes those search engines really mess with you...
Let's say you have a site selling widgets. You sell blue widgets, red widgets, green widgets and a whole bunch of colors I don't even want to think about.
Now Google in their wisdom has decided to rank you for 'red widgets' -- you are #2 in the SERPS! Woo Hoo! But wait -- they f'd up.
Your homepage is #1 for "red widgets" NOT your red-widgets.html page. Big deal you say?
Let me tell you -- it is a big deal.
Your conversion rate will suck.
If someone is looking for a red widget you want them on your red widgets page -- not the homepage!
Referrer cloaking can fix this in a jiffy.
Don't want to use referrer cloaking? Ok, you can go to a firm like Kefta and they'll charge you tens of thousands of dollars to do multivariate testing and along the way they'll fix this little problem for you -- using their version of referrer cloaking!
Announcing... wpCloaker! Helping You Get The RIGHT OFFERS In Front Of Your Paid & Organic Traffic Visitors
NOTE: wpCloaker works equally well with Wordpress and non-Wordpress websites! (we really should drop the 'wp' part)
Here's the thing, not only are the cadillac cloaking solutions expensive, none of them work directly with WordPress. Let's face it, WordPress has become the site building tool of choice for most internet marketers and the world -- over 20% of all world wide websites run Wordpress!
Until now there were no industrial strength "grey hat" options available to aggresive marketers.
Wordpress is the ideal content management system for blogs, article sites, and even (ahem) splogs. It flat out works, there are tons of good plugins, and it is free.
Can't beat that.
When you combine Wordpress with the ability to cloak and redirect you have the most powerful 1-2 punch around.
But what if you don't use Wordpress? What if your landing pages or site are plain 'ole HTML and PHP?
No bother. wpCloaker works fine as a standalone script and can cloak your EXISTING site. No changes to the content/layout/pages needed!
Installing the stand-along wpCloaker script can be a little tricky. As a Wordpress plugin it's a snap but standalone there's some tech you need to know. Our help desk can just do the install for you or guide you through the process.
By now you've figured out what wpCloaker can do -- it cloaks. But it cloaks the right way. It has ALL the features of the high end cloaking applications and works with your existing Wordpress and non-Wordpress sites:
- Does cloaking and redirecting. Both are important, but they are different.
- Tracks over 20 million IPs and fingerprints on our servers across multiple ad networks and search engines.
- Supports cloaking paid traffic, offers, & organic traffic with one system.
- Let's you detect users by fingerprint/IP, geo, referrer, and language code.
- Installs as a Wordpress plugin *or* as a stand-alone script
- Cloak the entire site, only one URL, or anything in between with out simple admin control panel.
- Exclude certain ip addresses & geos from EVER CLOAKING
- Sucker lists so that idiots that suck your bandwidth get sent somewhere else and don't bother your host

This is a steal. You are saving $200 AND have no monthly fees!
p.s Let's face it, wpCloaker may not be for you. You may not ready to cloak or you may be opposed to cloaking and redirecting. That's ok. Like I said, cloaking is a tool, not a miracle, and you need to determine what the right tools are for you. That said, I encourage you to think out of the box and start ATTACKING the ad networks and search engines. wpCloaker combined with your hard work can get you there.
p.p.s. Cloaking is always risky. Services like wpCloaker help you manage the risk but can never truly eliminate it. wpCloaker is not a magic pill or secret to riches. It is a precision tool used by large corporations and saavy marketers to get a leg up on the competition and market aggressively. wpCloaker is a sharp instrument and you can "get cut" using it. Know this going in. For all the power of cloaking you still have the risk of being detected at some point. It's a war between the marketer and the ad networks / search engines -- a constant back and forth. We do automated and manual traffic analysis continually. We are alwayss finding new fingerprints and new shadow bots... but again, nothing is perfect.
