Sitemaps not showing any discovered URL's

Submitted by Perce2 on Sun, 2020-05-31 06:16 in

Hi David,

have noticed in webmaster tools that one of my sitemaps is showing 0 discovered url's. It's been like that for weeks, not sure what may have caused this. Unsurprisingly all sales have dropped off.

/sitemap_index.xml Mar 25, 2020 May 30, 2020 Success 6
/shopping?pto_sitemap=xml Mar 1, 2020 May 24, 2020 Success 0

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks.

Hi,

Can you double check that the links being generated are correct - if you browse to the sitemap URL you will first see the sitemmap index of the individual actual sitemap URLs per feed. Browse to one of the actual sitemap URLs, and then check that the product page links being generated are correct. If that doesn't seem to be the case, or if you're still not sure of course if you could let me know an example sitemap (index) URL (I'll remove before publishing your reply) I'll check it out further with you of course...

Cheers,
David.

Hi David,

thanks for your quick reply.

Did as suggested but all looks fine, product page links appear to be correctly formed.
Not sure what else to check.
Sitemap index url: {link saved}

Thanks.

Hi,

Everything looks OK - a site: search on Google shows over 5000 pages indexed - maybe remove and then re-add the sitemaps to your webmaster tools account and see if that updates anything; otherwise unfortunately there's no way of course to guarantee indexing from sitemap submission...

Cheers,
David.

Thanks for taking a look David.

Seems strange, 10 weeks ago there was close to 40K valid pages, now it's showing just over 4K, that's a big drop!

I've removed and re-added the sitemaps, can't see any obvious changes so far, I'll keep looking for clues.

Cheers!
