    Can someone walk me through this?

    When i look at pages I want to see what they are showing the googlebot.
    Also is it possible to do this in scrapebox?

    Go to options>edit user agents and paste your useragents in there from the above website...
    Then check 'use custom user agents' and you're all set...

    Sorry IDK how to use a custom user agent manually in a browser...
