Recently while trying to submit a url to Google Webmaster Tools to get a page Crawled by search engine bot I received the following error message,

Fetch and Render : An error has occurred. Please try again later.

Even when i try "Crawl only this URL" or "Crawl this URL and its direct links" i get the same error!! I have not exhausted the monthly limits too (more than 450 single page urls crawls available and 7 Multiple url crawls available)

It seems to be a temporary issue and i guess I must wait and try again in some time.

Webmaster - An error has occurred. Please try again later

Update :

Solution Resolving fetch as Google error


Solution : Resolving fetch as Google error!

I tried Fetch as Google feature for some other url and it seemed to work, after analyzing the scenarios i found that there was are special symbols like [ or ] (square parentheses) in the url which was not getting crawled.

I edited the URL and removed the braces and tried Webmaster Fetch as Google again and it worked!!

Hope this helps someone facing similar issue!
