I did all of them but i got different error. It says on one of web sites "Unexpected Format: if IE 9" , it says for anathor web sites "Unexpected Format: CDATA[...]", or for another web site "HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden". So i couldn't understand anything this result. If you have some answer please can you help me.

What PRTG version are you currently using? And what is it you'd like to check, actually?

You probably want to check the HTTP Advanced Sensor, as the HTTP Content Sensor only checks values in brackets and not the actual content of the website, via regex for example.
