    hello guys, today i used that option. i made few changes, deleted old article, add new, changed button on site, add few more things.
    I pinged it and google didn't index changes even after 72 hours! I then looked on one forum and there I saw "fetch as google" tutorial for faster indexing.. I did it and checked option that "big" changes have made on my site. What I can expect now? How it will affect my site? Why I ask that? Bescause one guy said that he got penalized bescause of that? :O Can anyone tell me a little more? I searched and got basic overview what that option do, I don't see reson why they would penalize my site, but I'm also afraid that I maybe shouldn't do it.

    Honestly man you're worrying too much! You can get google to crawl your site but you have no influence on whether or not google choose to index it (though they pretty much always do). Keep adding content, building backlinks and trust me, google will stop by regularly and you wont have to give it a second thought. I strongly doubt that was the sole reason your friend got penalized - I'm sure you'll be fine, just give it a bit of time.

    You can use that option("big changes") 10 times a month. They give you 10 such fetches because they can. It's alright if you use all 10 of them, it's the quota google has provided for your own use, it's 100% legit and safe.

    Also if this is a new site, give it a week before worrying. 72 hours is nothing, really, in terms of working on a new site.

    Actualy it's not that new site. I hosted niche 1 first on it and then deleted whole site and puted totaly second niche, installed wordpress agian, diffrent theme.. everything! Anyway, I done some backlinking these days and pinged my site and backlinks. I hope it will get indexed soon and boost my rankings little :)

    Fetch, fetch, fetch. It's not going to harm your rankings in any way at all. Though, the concept of using WMT deserves close consideration in itself.

    I found an extremely fast way of indexing is to fetch as google individual pages and submit them as single-page (not whole site). Indexes within minutes that way in my experience. The only thing I would say is you don't want to use WMT on BH sites only your clean ones.

    Suggest you also ensure you have an up to date sitemap

    Webmaster tools - presume this is where you are talking about taking action?

    Under webmaster tools you can manually submit your website to Google. 72 hours is nothing you should wait a week
    at least before you start pulling your hair out.
