How the GoogleBot views your web site

Google now offers site owners a way to see exactly how the GoogleBot sees your site when it's being indexed. In order to use this service, you need to have a Google Account and sign up for Google Sitemaps. Once you have created an account, or with your existing account, go to

Once you add your sitemap to Google sitemaps and the GoogleBot has crawled your site, Google Sitemaps will give you details on Query stats, Crawl stats, Page analysis and Index stats.

With this tool, Google lets you know about such things as HTTP errors, URLs restricted by robots.txt, Unreachable URLs, URLs that timed out, as well as pages that link, refer and are indexed on your site. A lot of other useful info can be found there for webmasters as well.
