Anytime I used to use the "Fetch as Googlebot" feature in GWT's... i could refresh and see the results within 1-2 minutes.
I have been testing various reasons as to why new pages don't seem to be indexed right away and see that the fetch tool is taking a bit more time to work.
Is this just me, or it is for others too?
Up until today: Fetch as Googlebot in GWT was almost Instant.
Today: Fetch as Googlebot is currently Pending, at + 45 minutes and counting.
Update: Fetch recorded roughly an hour later.
