Forget the debate about cloaking, I am a bit tired of that anyway. How does one detect some of the cloaking going on around the Web. Follow these instructions:
(1) Download the Firefox Browser (2) Install it (3) Download the User Agent Switcher for Firefox/Mozilla while using firefox (4) Restart the browser (5) Under Tools --> User Agent Switcher --> Options --> Options (that will open a dialog box) (6) Click Add Under User Agents section (7) In the description add "Googlebot" and in the user agent add "Googlebot/2.1 (+http://www.googlebot.com/bot.html)" (8) Repeat this process for all the spiders you want to test. Updated comprehensive list of user agents. (9) Under Tools --> User Agent Switcher --> select the user agent (10) Then navigate to the pages that you want to test for cloaking.
Hope this helps some people be Googlebot. :)
