it takes time, when did you submit the sitemap?

It doesn't necessarily index every link in the sitemap everytime it accesses it.

I've added sitemaps with 20 urls in it before and on first pass it only indexed 13, a little while later all urls got indexed.

If the only way to get to the pages that are linked to from the sitemap is the sitemap page itself, there's no real reason for Google to index them.

Make sure they're integrated into your site's navigation as a whole, and they will soon get indexed.

The links are already added to the product detail pages. So i hope that when product detail pages get indexed it will start crawling the urls. Any other way ????

How can i find which 7 pages got indexed from sitemap2.xml ?

Did you also create a Sitemap Index file? That's the best way to get multiple xml sitemaps recognized.

See this Google help topic for more. There's a link there showing the structure of a sitemap index. Basically the sitemap index simply lists your individual xml sitemaps.

But don't expect miracles from your xml sitemaps. They may or may not index urls included xml sitemaps, but have stated many times that inclusion in a sitemap doesn't guarantee spidering or indexing.

You can use the site operator to find out what pages have been indexed

site:yourdomain.com
