    You just need to determine which is the Google bug (based on the Bot user agent or IP list) and the server configuration file to decide htacess allow Google bug will see these content, and the rest are visitors will see different content.

    No, trying to "deceive Google . . . to achieve high rankings" is definitely not "good onpage", it is very bad onpage. Anyone who tries to tell you that deceiving Google is a good idea is someone to be avoided. In fact, they probably won't tell you they are trying to deceive Google, they will just do it, and destroy any rankings you may already have, by digging you a hole so deep it would take a very long time to get out.

    Cloaking is the one of the most famous black hat tactics for the improving rankings. In this tactic they make two different content one for the search bots and another for the user. By this they believe they can get higher rankings in search engine, but now a days search bots are really smart to catch events like this.
