    Creating a Google Sitemap using online or offline tools you can get Google to crawl your site within 24 Hours. After Google crawls your site they give you feedback about any problems they encountered.

    Most frequent error of sitemap is UTF-8 incompatible link format, this is important for webmasters of non-English web sites or for all interactive web sites where is subject of web page included in URL. Now when many webmasters using contextual ads like Google Adsense, URL is one of top priority of serving ads relevant with your web content.
    You can check UTF-8 compatibility of your sitemap manually by Microsoft Internet Explorer, simply open sitemap.xml file by IE and Internet Explorer will report every link error with number of line in sitemap.

    This is solution for small web sites but webmasters with large numbers of links can use this method for checking they sitemaps when Google Sitemap report errors.
