After you have checked your site and taken corrective action, you might want to check your site’s HTML validation with W3 Validator. W3 Validator checks your web documents markup validity. You should find the Warnings and Errors with it and take corrective action as much possible so that search engine crawlers can move more smoothly through out your site and index faster. If you cannot correct it yourself, no need to be worried that much too. Your site should still be working fine like before!
