Cloaking means simply this........

You have a program that can detect which spider visits you and you can have that "bot" serve the spider what you want them to see.

Which could be gibberish filled with keywords just made for the spiders.

But when a real visitor visits your site they will see what you intended them to see and not the pages of keywords built for the spiders.
