In search console it shows:
Submitted 250,000, Indexed 25,000
But when you go to Google Index > Index Status > it says total indexed 800,000
1. What is difference between XML site map Indexed pages vs Google Index within Search Console?
2. What does it mean when googled Index pages are more than site map pages?
3. Lastly, does it mean if 25,000 pages indexed out of 25,0000 submitted, but if google is showing also in index 800,000, that the "important" pages within the site map may actually not be indexed within google itself, and the 775,000 (800,000 indexed of the 25,000 submitted), that these pages could be "junK" pages, i.e. junk = pages with canoncical issues or have query paramters
What's the reason for discrepancy?
