Sitemap discovered URLs 0



New Member
Just updated a page on my website and when i performed a URL inspection webmaster tools showed, 'Indexed, not submitted in a sitemap' Now, i understand, if i am correct, that this simply means that Google indexed my page another way, other than the sitemap.

I went to check the sitemaps page on webmaster tools, and it's showing, status = success, but 0 discovered URLS.

Now, I have checked my site and there are no errors, and the funny thing is, my site is performing better than ever in Google search for my industry terms - I check this daily. So, why is it showing, ' Discovered URLs 0' for my sitemap?

Should i be concerned?

I would have generated a new sitemap in your place. It helps the search engine understand and index your site index (if it's large). There is no difference for a small site.
