Google identifies cloaking by comparing the content served to its web crawler with the content served to end users. If there is a significant difference between the two, it is a potential sign of cloaking and Google's algorithm may flag the website for further review. Additionally, Google may also use other techniques such as user-agent detection and IP address analysis to determine if a website is engaging in cloaking. However, it's worth noting that cloaking is against Google's Webmaster Guidelines and can result in penalties or a ban from the search engine.
