How to Disguise as Google Bot?


Have you ever experienced this? You ask Google to search something and it will return a lot of relevant search results, but if you try to open the ones with the most promising content, you are confronted with a registration page instead, and thestuff you were looking for will not be revealed to you unless you agree to a credit card transaction first. This means that Google is able to see what a normal surfer cannot see.The reason behind this is that Google uses a Bot called GoogleBot and most of websites which force users to register or even pay in order to search and use their content, leave a backdoor open for the GoogleBot because a prominent presence in Google searches is known to generate sales leads, site hits and exposure. Examples of such sites are Expert-Exchange, Windows Magazine, .Net Magazine, Nature, and many other sites around the globe.What if you could disguise as GoogleBot then you can also see what GoogleBot can.
