What is Fetch as Google tool ?
The Fetch as Google tool enables you to test how Google crawls or renders a URL on your site. You can use Fetch as Google to test if Google can crawl your web page, to see whether Googlebot can access a page on your site, how it renders the page, and whether any page resources (such as images or scripts) are blocked to Googlebot.
How to Run a fetch?
In the textbox, enter the URL on your site that you want to fetch, relative to the site root. If you leaved the textbox blank fetches the site root page. For example, if the current property is ” http://thewideawareness.com/ “, a request for ” tutorial/boost-web-browsing-speed/ ” would fetch http://thewideawareness.com/tutorial/boost-web-browsing-speed/ .
Fetched URLs are limited to the current site: for example, if the current Search Console property is to http://thewideawareness.com/ you cannot fetch a URL from https://thewideawareness.com/ or http://m.thewideawareness.com/ .
Click either Fetch or Fetch and Render:
Fetch: Fetches a specified URL in your site and displays the HTTP response. Does not request or run any associated resources (such as images or scripts) on the page.
Fetch and render: Fetches a specified URL in your site, displays the HTTP response and also renders the page according to a specified platform (desktop or smartphone). This requests and runs all resources on the page such as images and scripts.
The request will be added to the fetch history table, with a “pending” status. When the request is complete,the row will show the success or failure of the request and some basic information. Click any non-failed fetch row in the table to get additional details about the request, including raw HTTP response headers and data, and (for Fetch and Render) a list of blocked resources and a view of the rendered page.
When you Click the Request Indexing it will ask you to “Choose submitting Option ” whether Crawl only this URL or Crawl this URL and its direct links. After that you need to pass the Human Verification to confirm that you are not a robot.
If the request succeeded and is less than four hours old, you can tell Google to re-crawl and possibly re-index the fetched page, and optionally any pages that the fetched page links to.
Request fetch status
Google successfully contacted your site and crawled your page, and can get all resources referenced by the page. Click the table row to see more details about the fetch results.
Google got a response from your site and fetched the URL, but could not reach all resources referenced by the page because they were blocked by robots.txt files. If this is a fetch only, do a fetch and render.For resources blocked by robots.txt files that you don’t own, reach out to the resource site owners and ask them to unblock those resources to Googlebot. See the list of resource fetch error descriptions.
The server responded with a redirect. The Fetch as Google tool does not follow redirects. Although the actual Google crawler follows redirects, the Fetch as Google tool will not. You must follow a redirect manually:
Specific error type… Any of the resource type fetch errors can also apply to a fetch request for the entire page and can be shown in the status column. For example: Not found or Unreachable.
