    Hi brothers,

    I had read some topics related to my problem, but I didn't find the solution yet.

    My site is ...(do not permit to post domain here) (using Magento) and I had already created sitemap for this site.

    I had Google webmaster tool account and I added this sitemap to Google, but only 2 links have been added to Google. I don't know why.

    I did a lot of sitemaps before, for examples vbulletin forum, joomla website, and all these sitemaps work fine.

    Anyone know this problem, please tell me what to do.
    Thanks a lot,

    If you google for your domain name, do you see it in top results? Allthough you submit a sitemap, google may not necessarily index all pages.

    I saw just only 2 links indexed. I submitted a lot of sitemaps to G before and I know G doesn't index all links, but 2 links is too few :(

    Thank bro,

    That's true also do you have any external links pointing to your domain / pages?

    Does it have any reason for Google to not only index your pages but then show them in the search results?

    If the domain is new has no authority and no backlinks it may never be fully indexed never mind showing up in the SERPS.

    Is your problem that Google is not showing more links or is your problem that your site is not indexed? Your post title says your site is not indexed but in your posts you are talking about Google only showing 2 back links.

    You need to do a site:yourdomain.com

    and let us know what you get if you want more help. You have already been asked for this info already, when asking for help the best thing to do is follow the steps that are suggested and come back with the info. This allows people to better help you.

    If it is just a matter of Google not showing you links then that may not really be a problem. Google will never show you more than just a small percentage of your actual links. They do this on purpose and are on record as saying so.

    I think I had done rather good SEO and backlinks to my site. In only 2 months from beginning, my alexa rank is 600.000, I have more than 1000 backlinks, and about 50 keywords in top 10 Google. But my sitemap is not indexed in Google.

    If you have submitted it recently then you cannot expect to see it indexed over night, there are a lot of factors involved in the indexing of the site. Build links and also make sure that after a domain name search your site shows up in the result pages.

    Check your source code. Is there

    Code:
    <meta name="robots" content="noindex, nofollow">
    somewhere inbetween the <head> </head> section?

    I'm confused....

    If you are ranking for the top 10 for 50 keywords, why do you you care if your sitemap is indexed?

    Your sitemap is not what will make you money.

    Sitemaps are bullshit for magento sites. Just make sure your pages are interlinking fine to each other, which should be no problem with e-commerce sites.

    Check if your meta tags are on no index or no follow, did you install the yoast seo plugins (this makes it possible to change the meta tags)?

    Are you using a custom theme or a standard theme?

    I personally never have any problems with getting my magento sites indexed but you'll need to build a decent amount of backlinks.
