Google Search Console API Doesn’t Return Sitemaps Indexed Counts
John Mueller from Google said “As we removed that functionality from the UI a while back, we’re no longer returning sitemaps indexed counts in the API either.” “We should have communicated this better – sorry for the hassles,” he added.
Here are screen shots of the API returning 0 for indexed counts, but the interface showing 120 valid URLs submitted. The API just shows 129 submitted but according to the interface, 120 are valid and 9 have errors.
@johnmu is the search console sitemaps api v3 getting deprecated? newly submited sitemaps don’t get a data update for weeks. see screenshots API vs. new googel search console – it’s not an issolated issue but happens over lots of sites cc @googlewmc @dannysullivan @searchliaison pic.twitter.com/opqYpzHJKk
