I’m using a popular sitemap service to create sitemaps on my site and they’re pinging Google, Bing, and Ask automatically. The problem I’m concerned about is that I’m on a SaaS (software as a service) platform and do not have access to my FTP to upload a sitemap.xml file or my robots.txt file to include a redirect.
Basically the sitemaps being submitted to the search engines is coming from another domain (http://www.serviceprovidersdomain.com/sitemap/50924.xml.gz) and not in my root directory.
Are there any experts out there that can let me know if my sitemaps are being indexed?
What is your web site link… If your site have feed you can submit you feed link as a sitemap.
I just clicked on your Google link and got a message which began:
“Your Sitemap has been successfully added to our list of Sitemaps to crawl” so they have obviously accepted it, but if there are any subsequent problems it should show up in your Webmaster Tools.
You can make accounts with Google and Bing/Yahoo and see the results of your sitemap submissions. This also gives you a good stat to see what pages are current index in their search database.
Frankly speaking, you have to find out manually or use third-party software/application to identify your indexed pages.
Type in Google Search Box:
If we talk about robots.txt, just verify that your robots.txt file is valid or not. If not, then there is a change crawling errors.
I think, you have to create an account in Google analytics. You will got a message through mail when your sitemap got accepted.
