Tutorial :Search engine cloaking


I have implemented cloaking for search engines. In my category pages, it will display all the products if the user agent visiting is a search engine.

But how do I test it? Can I pretend to be a search engine? Do I wait till google indexes it and look at the cached result?


You could try User Agent Switcher in Firefox, or spider the site yourself with wget and specify the user agent with the -U option

It's worth noting that delivering different pages to some search engines (e.g. Google) can lead to the entire site being removed from their index.


There are addons for Firefox that let you set the User Agent. Here's one:


I think the new Safari has this built in when you activate the Developer menu
