    Anyone ever have this issue before? I have never has this happen. I always submit a sitemap to webmaster tools. Fetch as Google and its indexed within hours. Sometime never even submit a sitemap for a week.
    Not sure why the sitemap says pending. The site has been up for a week and no indexed pages. Anybody have any ideas?

    Thanks

    Remove the sitemap and add it again. And make sure your website is not down. Also after submitting sitemap click on "Fetch as google"

    Oh yes, happens all the time. I've found that posting links to the site on Social media gets Google to pick up the sites and sitemap quicker. Give it a shot :)

    Don't worry Google is not so fast but your sitemap and site will be indexed slowly, so you may wait and see for results.

    I think there is something wrong though. I have submitted a sitemap 3 times. Sitemap still says pending. The url's have been indexed is 0. I made a facebook and Google+ and posted a post on each one. Still nothing. The robots.txt is not blocking anything. I cant figure out why they wouldn't index. Every other website is indexed within hours.
