I'm a newbie in Google Webmaster Tools. I've verified my site, created my sitemap and submitted it to the google webmaster account.

But after a week of waiting I've found that 46 out of 250 URLs in my sitemap are indexed (optimization -> sitemaps) but the Total Indexed is always a zero?

Is this normal or do I have to do something else?

I would have thought your "total indexed" figure should be at least as high as the number indexed from the sitemap? And certainly greater than 1 if anything is indexed, even if all your pages are duplicate! Are you looking at the correct version of your site... ie. With or without the www subdomain? – w3dk Oct 4 '12 at 11:27
I don't think there is a problem with my site, it's made with drupal7 and no error appeared according to the Crawl errors page – mohammed amine bourkadi Oct 4 '12 at 11:38
But which site are you looking at in GWT - yourdomain.com or www.yourdomain.com? Which is the canonical domain? – w3dk Oct 4 '12 at 11:44
i've insered www.mydomaine.com – mohammed amine bourkadi Oct 4 '12 at 11:48
is that a wrong url? – mohammed amine bourkadi Oct 4 '12 at 11:51

Google Webmaster Tools can be uber slow (at least it was in 2012), especially if your site does not have many backlinks or if it is not crawled often.
