I'm trying to make sense of the Index Status versus SiteMap files indexed.
- We have about 2,000 URLs in Google doing a site:
- The "Total Indexed" is 1,660. Google says this is the "The total number of URLs currently in Google's index.:
- The sitemap was submitted with 504 URLs but Google reports only indexing 120. I can't see any way of seeing the URLs it has indexed from the Site Map page.
The site map page is showing this error:
When we tested a sample of the URLs from your Sitemap, we found that some URLs were not accessible to Googlebot due to an HTTP status error. All accessible URLs will still be submitted.
First, is there a way to find see the URLs indexed from the site map. And second, should I care?
Why is there such a discrepancy between the # of URLs currently in the index vs those in the site map. I'm guessing that the client's site has about 500 html files on their site.
