Google Webmaster Tools Showing 0 Pages Indexed For Sitemaps Users

If you login to your Google Webmaster Tools account and notice that Google is reporting that they have indexed 0 of your submitted pages through Sitemaps, then don't worry - you are not alone.

A WebmasterWorld and Google Groups thread has several webmasters who have noticed the same issue. I suspect it is either already fixed or that it is impacting a select number of accounts. I personally do not see the issue when I check some of my sites.

Clicking on your Sitemaps section might show something like this now:

Sitemap stats
Total URLs: 171
Indexed URLs: 0

Total URLs would be the number of URLs submitted to Google via Sitemaps. So yours may be larger or smaller.

Is this still an issue for you?
