Why then would google sitemaps state it was not verified and that NO pages of my site are in the index?
You're seeing this activity now because last month, we started rechecking verification a little more often than before.
And a second may be the Many Strange Reports in Google Webmaster Tools [webmasterworld.com] that are being seen recently.
So a "verify the site again" would sound less frightening.
This is probably some time limit to check on your authority as the admin, right? I haven't seen any other checks that'd let them know whether the site is still the same, has the same webmaster / owner... Hmm... yeah, coming to think of it i've always thought they were low on security. Now... i feel much safer ;P
Or perhaps it is a glitch.
When did you first verify the site?
Does anyone know of such a time-based re-check?
I'll wait for a few hours, and then verify ours.
You know... when you have started the process, just the server being too busy to check whether it's there.
( It was okay for three months, now it's pending, perhaps there's an automated check scheduled every once in a while, but it postponed because of a busy server? )
I tried to re-verify the site.
Just in case :P
Our system has experienced a temporary problem.

...which then eventually reverts back to...
