Sitemap check for errors
A sitemap will contain information like when a page was last updated or if there are alternate versions of it.
When it comes to specific types of content, like video, website operators can include running time, category, and age rating. For images, typical information includes subject matter and license type. If your website contains news, your sitemap can include an article title as well as its publication date.
A sitemaps report will inform Google about new sitemap files on your website. The search engine will use it to check your sitemap submission history and to determine if there are any errors during parsing.
To submit a sitemap for crawling, you’ll tell Google its location on your site. Only those with owner permissions will be able to perform this task. If you lack the required permissions, reference it from your robots.txt file.

Missing out on submitting a sitemap
Neglecting on updating a sitemap
