Google Search Console Sitemap


Hi all,

I’m at a dead end with this one. Can anyone offer advice on the below

I am trying to submit my sitemap on google search console and everytime I do it comes up couldn’t fetch . Why could this be?


Google Search Console can't see my website

This is a bug with Google search console. You need to just wait (resubmitting will reset the waiting time) for 2-3 days. Actually the error message should be pending instead of couldn't fetch.



Thanks Xaq for your reply. You mentioned it should say pending instead of couldn’t fetch. Am I right in saying couldn’t fetch means pending ?



Yes. That’s a bug and if it was showing the right message (pending) you would know nothing is wrong. SO just leave it as is (with fetch error) and check the next day.
