Is it possible to check which links of the sitemap I've submitted are being indexed, and which ones are not?

I've submitted my sitemap.xml without errors. When I check the sitemap in google search console, it says 174 links are sent, but only 120 are indexed.

So I'm looking for an option/tool that lets me check which links are indexed and which ones are not.

Nope, there's no way. However, the closest you'll get is selecting a long period of time in Analytics and then exporting all the pages that received organic search traffic.

  • @TimothyVGoyvaerts I am on the fence whether this can be done reliably. There are two answers here and I am not sure which is correct. However, this answer may help to understand things a bit better and perhaps you can tell us. webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/72610/… Please do tell us what does work!! – closetnoc Feb 12 '16 at 17:43
  • This was flagged as "very low quality", presumably because it is very short and because the answer is a simple "not possible". This answer would be better with a reference or by explaining some very tedious ways to check every URL by hand, but I believe that this is the correct answer in this case, so I'm leaving it up. – Stephen Ostermiller Feb 12 '16 at 18:09
  • @StephenOstermiller i suspect, it was flagged because of factual incorrectness – Evgeniy Feb 12 '16 at 20:01

Surely you can. make a Google query info:www.your-site.com/your-page.html - if the page URL is indexed, it will appear in index and you will see it, if not - not.

To get things done quick:

iMacro:

VERSION BUILD=8881205 RECORDER=FX
SET !TIMEOUT_STEP 0
SET !ERRORIGNORE YES
TAB T=1
SET !DATASOURCE sitemap.csv 
SET !DATASOURCE_COLUMNS 1
SET !LOOP 1
SET !DATASOURCE_LINE {{!LOOP}}
URL GOTO={{!COL1}}
TAG POS=1 TYPE=H3 ATTR=CLASS:"r" EXTRACT=HTM
SAVEAS TYPE=EXTRACT FOLDER=* FILE=indexed.csv
  • That sounds very labor intensive to do for every URL in a sitemap. – Stephen Ostermiller Feb 12 '16 at 18:09
  • @StephenOstermiller nothing complicated at all: create a list of query urls like https://www.google.com/search?q=info:http://www.example.com/page1.html and then let an iMacro run through the list and collect the output of the SERP page. Thing of 15 minutes. – Evgeniy Feb 12 '16 at 20:09
  • Using automated tools to perform searches is against the Google terms of service and will likely get your IP address put on the "captcha required" list. – Stephen Ostermiller Feb 12 '16 at 20:11
  • making random time gaps between queries proven helps against this. i make at least 35 seconds between queries, or use VPN. if somebody doesn't want to violate against Google's ToS by his own, can pay money for a service, which breaks ToS and delivers data. – Evgeniy Feb 12 '16 at 20:13
