Why Static Pages not indexed by Google?
Google can only index pages which have not been tagged as (noindex). If you have selected the (noindex) option from page settings while publishing a Page using blogger editor then this page will be submitted to Google by the sitemap but it will not be indexed unless you uncheck this (noindex) box at right side of your blogger post writing page.
For example in my case i have submit 104 pages but only 96 are indexed. This is because we have set 8 pages as noindex.
