Greetings lovely people, I was trying to complete this Google Console thing so that my website shows up on google but the problem is I enter the address correctly and nothing opens. Here is what I type:
I verified the Domain on Console, connected to Analytics too,
The reason that why my website doesn't show up on Google is probably something to do with completing this Sitemap Action right? I hope its that easy
Thank you, I appreciate
Edit: I don't know if it can be because the store is passworded?

This is an accepted solution.
Hi, @twennywann !
The sitemap likely wasn't appearing because the password page was enabled as it looks like you've already deduced. Sitemap readers can't access the sitemap when the password page is enabled. If you still have it enabled you can follow the steps here. I'm able to open the sitemap for the website without any issues at the moment by going to smartypetsies.com/sitemap.xml.
Once it's successfully submitted, the process of crawling and indexing your site can take time, and Google doesn't guarantee how long it'll take. You can learn more about what to expect from Google's Help Centre here.
