|Health > Index Status – too many pages indexed not in sitemap.xml||n8brophy||7/24/12 11:17 PM|
I am checking out the new Health tab "Index Status" that was announced today.
I am seeing Google has a total index of 9760 but my sitemap has 1324 pages.
What could cause the huge number? Will we have transparency in seeing the reason for this? I have blocked the pages that I don't want indexed in my robots.txt
I have no errors or duplicates when I crawl with screaming frog seo - and I have 0 errors with seomoz…
Suggestion on how I can research this large number?

Can you post the site URL? Use a URL shortener if you want.

Make sure that your site has correct 404 (Not Found) HTTP status for non-existing URLs, for Googlebot to know which URLs are incorrect from broken links.
