Sometimes I visit the "fetch as google" section of the Google Search Console (webmaster tools). I then request to fetch and render the page, everything seems ok. I then attempt to the submit the page to index, and the usual dialog box as follows appears:
Choose submit method
You are submitting the following URL for indexing by Google: http://example.com
Recrawling happens a few minutes after you click Go. At that time, the content of your page is what Google will index. The page will be considered for indexing provided it meets our quality guidelines and avoids the use of noindex directives.
[option] Crawl only this URL
[option] Crawl this URL and its direct links
I wanted to select the last option, and I receive the following error message in light yellow text next to the cancel button (talk about bad user experience):
An error has occurred. Please try again later.
I also tried the other option in the same box, and I still receive the above message.
What would cause that message to appear or how would I fix it?
