Hi,
It's something that you shouldn't do (a black hat SEO technique). You are showing a different version of website to user and to bots. It's a way of misleading bots to improve rankings this way.
Highly unrecommended.
Cheers,
Adam

I know that cloacking is used by black hat which is one of the unethical methods in SEO. It uses the devices thta provide mechanism for the search engines.    Cloacking provides the use of false pages that are loaded with the keyword  and other content that is search engine optimized. And cloacking only works when it uses CGI scripts in the hidden web page used to scan the IP adress of the visitor visiting the web page.

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.

Cloaking is a technique used to deliver the content on a Web page to a search engine in such a way that different content than what is delivered to a regular human user appears on the search engine. The goal of cloaking is to boost a website's search engine rank on certain keywords.

In cloaking, the search engine and the user are literally not on the same page. Therefore, both the user and the search engine are being deceived.

- Cloaking is used by black hat and it is one of the unethical practices in SEO. It uses the devices that provide deceiving mechanism for the search engines.
- This directs the webpage to a place that are not visible on domain and the spiders or crawlers are analyzing for it.
- Cloaking provides the use of false pages that are loaded with the keyword and other content that is search engine optimized.
- This boosts the search engine results to rank the page higher on the search engines and provide artificial methods to advance the ranking of a web page.
- Cloaking only works when it uses CGI scripts in the hidden web page used to scan the IP address of the visitor visiting the web page.
