Today, After publishing one of my articles “Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Not Use Revenue Hits Ads” I went to Google Webmaster tools to submit my URL to fetch it. But after going there I saw the page loading indefinitely with spinning icon.
Definitely, I got surprised. Because, I have used lots of time the Google Webmaster Tools, but never I face such kind of problem. Then I google it for the solution. I got Jeremy Brooksbank posted a similar issue on Jan 7 on “Webmaster Central Help Forum“.
“When I try and open fetch as google on my search console it does not fully load and all I see is the spinning icon all the other resources appear to work and analytics is working ok any ideas would be appreciated thanks”

After getting this issue, I have tried several methods to solve this, but all failed.
Measures were taken to solve Fetch as Google Problem
- Changing to Google DNS 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206
- Changing to Open DNS 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168
- Tried from Opera ( Different Browser – Cache and Cookieless)
- Tried from Opera built-in VPN
- Try with Opera Turbo
- Google webmaster authenticate from new Gmail and try to solve
After I have tried several methods I have found that this issues only happened When we use 64bit Browser with some incompatible plugins. That’s why I have removed the Google Chrome 64bit and install Google Chrome 32 Bit.
After Installing 32 Bit I able to do all the Google Webmaster Tools function properly. After that, This problem again happens in Mozilla Firefox 64 Bit Version. So I have to Install 32 Bit Version of Mozilla Firefox.
- I have updated the Java to Latest Version (Both 32 and 64 bit Version)
- I have updated Adobe Flash Player (Both 32 and 64 bit Version)
With 32 Bit Browser, I can Able to do the following works in Google Webmaster Tools.
- Fetch As Google tool use (Before I can’t fetch the site)
- Security Issues solve ( Before I can’t check the tick box)
- Adjust the Router Time (Mine is GMT/UTC+6 – Dhaka)
Other Things Need to Do:
- Go to chrome://flags/, click on Reset all to default
- Update latest version of Adobe Flash Player (Both For Chrome and Firefox – 32 and 64 bit)
