Using coreApi to publish a component, method execute successfully and the publishing queue in tridion also show that the item published status as success. But the component in tridion which has been published by coreapi does not change the "Publish Status" from Unpublished to Published. The same thing happens to Unpublish method.

Is the component dynamically publishable? – Saurabh Gangwar Apr 30 '14 at 6:41
No, the component is not dynamically publishable – Jacky Pei Apr 30 '14 at 6:43

By Default if user publish a component which is not dynamically publishable, the Tridion items (where this component is used and are already published) are published not the component.

That is why, the publish status is not changing for the component (independently non publishable item).

You can check this behavior in publish popup by clicking “show items to publish” button.

The same component, if I use CMI to publish it, its "Publish Status" changed, but if I use core service to publish it, its "Publish Status" not change. I really do not understand the difference between the two ways. – Jacky Pei Apr 30 '14 at 9:39
