XML Sitemap Validator

See how to use XML Sitemap Validator

Though an XML sitemap is not meant for users, it is still vitally important, as it allows search engines to more easily crawl and index your site.  The order in which your pages are organized on the sitemap also give the search engine an indication as to the overall importance of the individual pages.

XML sitemaps do not necessarily exist on every site, but they are one way of directing a spider through the site, ensuring disallowed pages are not crawled and pages which are important to users are crawled quickly.

The Sitemap Validator Tool will allow you to make sure your XML sitemap is operating as you intend.  Simply upload a copy of the document to validate.

This tool reports "Fatal Error 9: Input is not proper UTF-8" for my sitemap.xml, which when looked at by other tools, or downloaded and examined, does not show this error. Is this tool faulty, or do I need to be concerned about the results?
