Anyone notice this behaviour?

/sitemap.xml is ok but the various /sitemap_products_[number].xml URLs have issues for me.

Checked on my own and a couple of other random Shopify sites now - same thing. Tried accessing with ScreamingFrog and Googlebot UAs - same.

Hi @KieranR 

Hope you're having a great day!

You should use Shopify Status App to log in and view detailed status for your store.

Yeah of course, I did check. IME not much downtime actually gets reported in that status page even when I've experienced periods of downtime in the past.

But this specific issue is no longer happening, so all good
