    The method of presenting the content to the search engine crawler is distinct from the one presented to the
    user’s browser for better indexing is called cloaking. The purpose of cloaking is to distort the search engine
    ranking through cloak content. It is also deemed as an illegal technique and touted as Black hat SEO.
