In order to submit a URL to Google, you need to have an account with Google Search Console (Previously know as Google Webmaster).
Considering you have an account with Google Search Console, go to “Crawl” on the left pane. Under “Crawl” go to “Fetch as Google“. To make it easy for you here is the direct link to Fetch as Google.
You can request Google to either perform “Fetch” or “Fetch and Render” operation. Fetch operation is slightly faster than the “Fetch and Render“.
Whats the use of “Fetch as Google“?
To find out if your page is suitable for indexing by the Google, we use “Fetch as Google” tool. This tool basically lets us know any crawl issues on your site and tests how Google crawls a page.
If a there are no errors in your fetch then it displays Complete with a green tick mark under the Status column. If a fetch has an error, it displays an appropriate message. Such as this example below:
The difference between Fetch and, Fetch and Render
|Fetch||Fetch and Render|
|Checks Security issues.||Checks Security issues.|
|Checks Network connectivity issues.||Checks Network connectivity issues.|
|Does not check the page for rendering issue.||Checks the page for Rendering issue in desktop or smartphone.|
|Check whether images or scripts are blocked from indexing.||Check whether images or scripts are blocked from indexing.|
Fetch as Google “An error has occurred. Please try again later“
Google sets the limitation on how many times you can request Google to Crawl in a day fro Indexing. If you try to Crawl more than ten times a day with “Crawl only this URL” then Google will display an error message “An error has occurred. Please try again later“.
However, you can ask Google to fetch your page with “Crawl this URL and its direct links” up to 20 times
|Crawl only this URL||10 per day|
|Crawl this URL and its direct links||20 per day|
