I submitted a sitemap of about 500 urls. Due to an unexpected server downtime, the pages had returned 404 errors during crawl. (The errors were reported in search console.) Now the server is up again and the pages are working fine. I have marked the errors fixed in search console. But I could see that the pages are not being crawled again for about a week now. Is this normal?

Note: Usually my sitemap URLs get crawled and indexed in 2 to 3 days.

    Is this normal? Yes. It will just plain take a while. – closetnoc Jul 24 '18 at 14:18
