why do you want to do that. It is known as a black hat technique in SEO and one should not practice it.

cloaking affiliate links is completely different, it's just "masking" the actual URL of the affiliate link using a type of redirect script, redirecting the links with a script running on the site. So instead of the regular affiliate link, it would look like
IANA — Example domains
IANA — Example domains

And the script will know which affiliate (or network) URL to send the user agent to because it identifies the URL that either widgets or gadgets is defined as in the list of variables in the script.

Cloaking is a black hat search engine optimization (SEO) technique in which the content presented to the search engine spider is different from that presented to the user's browser.

Cloaking means to hide something. It is a black hat Seo technique.

According to Google cloaking is "a website that returns altered webpages to search engines crawling the site." In other words, a human reading the site would see different content or information than the Google bot or other search engine robot reading the site. Most of the time, cloaking is implemented in order to improve search engine ranking by misleading the search engine robot into thinking the content on the page is different than it really is.

the updates are constant. It would work along the lines of that each time a spider finds a change within a site it would update that sites variables which would then take affect the next time a relative term is searched for.

Cloaking is a method of returning different pages to search engines than to people. When a person requesting the file of a particular URL of his website site page is returned to normal, but when a search robot that makes the same request, a special page that has been created so that the engine is returned, and the page normal URL is hidden the engine.

Cloaking is a SEO technique in which the content presented to the user and search engine are different from each other. Generally this technique is not recommended as different versions off web pages are visible to the spiders of search engine and users are redirected to a different page. It is a bad method and should be avoided.
