---- Submit URLs to Google with Fetch as Googlebot

When you submit a URL in this way Googlebot will crawl the URL, usually within a day.
I love this. The "Fetch as Googlebot" feature doesn't use the real googlebot, just an understudy who has learned all its lines. So they have to crawl the page all over again for it to count.
Today's interesting lesson: When you (that is, you, not me) make a post in Windows-Latin-1 using curly quotes and em dashes, my browser decides it is in "Japanese (Shift JIS)" and turns those six non-Latin-1 characters into Kanji.
