But in Google Webmaster Central shows (1003 indexed URLs in sitemap)
Sitemap type - Web
Format Sitemap Submitted - Jan 6, 2009
Last downloaded by Google - Mar 12, 2009
Total URLs in Sitemap - 1147
Indexed URLs in Sitemap - 1003
Can anyone help with this.
You've got a small enough set of urls that you can probably pin down exactly which ones are in question between the two approaches. And when in doubt on whether a url is indexed or not, just put the whole thing in the search box.
According to “Tedster” – “just put the whole thing in the search box”. My pages are showing nearly 85% indexed pages. But some of the indexed URLs are not showing from public view.
So I had a doubt whether Google will hide indexed pages from public view or not, since my competitor’s site indexed pages are still shown from public view.
And in the end, the data you get from that "about" number is not all that actionable anyway - unless it's off by an order of magnitude.
