    Some of you experienced the issue, that Google Webmaster Tools showed all pages of the sitemap as "submitted", but none of them as "indexed".

    I've talked to Google about this behavior, and they confirmed it was a issue with the presentation in Google Webmaster Tools. It was resolved Friday night and should already be fixed in all of your sites now or later today. It was just a presentation issue, the actual index of your blog was NOT disturbed in any way.

    If you still don't see any indexed pages, please check:

    • That you have verified the right website. As explained in this blog article, Google differentiates now (since end of march!) between http / https, www / non-www and root / subfolder. So if you run your blog on http://www.blog.com/ make sure you add http://www.blog.com/ to Google Webmaster Tools and http://www.blog.com/sitemap.xml as your sitemap. If you add http://blog.com/ or https://www.blog.com/ you will NOT see indexed pages!
    • That your sitemap does not have any errors. Your sitemap might contain warnings, for example when your website was loading slowly when Google tried to crawl it. This is not an issue with your sitemap
    • If your sitemap contains links to pages which are not available, try to find them in WordPress and check which plugins you have installed. The plugin reads all posts from the post table which are published and don't have a password. If something appears in your sitemap, it is in your WordPress database.

    I have a problem like yours.
    I had 16 indexed pages on Google but now just one.
    Day by day google cleared my index pages. Just sitemap.xml link remained on google. This clearing process started 15 days ago.
    I couldn't find what can be a problem. Google webmaster tools gives me 500 Internal Server Error. I can access by myself or otherwhere but bots ,facebook debug says 500 errror.They can't access.
    I checked .htacces file , file and folder permissions, robots.txt file... There are no problem.
    I don't know but I think this problem's reason is sitemap plugin.

    Can you help me if it can be a reason of my indexing and 500 error?

    I just realized that my sitemap.xml link was deleted my post links list. There is just 4 links on sitemap file.So, they are not relative my posts too.I couldn't realize that because of cache. When I refresh it, I saw my links dissappeared on sitemap.xml.How can be this? What can be reason?

    I solved my problem so so..
    I created a php.ini file and reset to memory 40MB-60MB something like that .So I increased the php memory.
    Than google acccess to my site and removed 500 server error for my website.
    I didn't know why my sitemap link shows me a just 4 link. I have just realized it. This is the new feature which is dynamic sitemap :D
    But still just homepage indexed, other 14 pages are waiting for 3 days.
    and How/Why occured this problem , I couldn't find what can be a reason..

    My site used to have 259 out of 260 pages indexed. This morning the index was 0, even after resubmitting the xml sitemap it remained 0. Yesterday my server was down for a short time due to a resource capacity issue which was caused and solved by the server guys. All my other sites on the server work fine including all the other xml sitemaps for the other sites being indexed except for one. Any idea what to do or is this a google issue?
