Introducing browseo.net's new de-cloaking engine
This just came out of our labs: you can now check for cloaking attempts with one click:
Browseo will then perform two checks:
- is the response code different for Googlebot?
- is any part of the code / content different for Googlebot?
Cloaking means serving different content to search engines and human visitors (browsers). Cloaking is considered a violation of Google's webmaster guidelines, and it probably hurts the feelings of every other search engine out there as well.
We included a link instead of displaying the results inline because this would have slowed down Browseo's performance a bit. Since the de-cloaker is kind of a special interest tool we felt it would be better to keep Browseo speedy and just link to a separate page with the cloaking detector.
Please bear in mind that this feature is very much a Beta, and that feedback is always welcome 😉
