i downloaded the package from the site and used the command su -c "yum localinstall --nogpgcheck google-chrome-stablecurrentx86_64.rpm"

Examining google-chrome-stable_current_x86_64.rpm: google-chrome-stable-21.0.1180.79-151411.x86_64
Cannot add package google-chrome-stable_current_x86_64.rpm to transaction. Not a compatible architecture: x86_64

the compatible version turned out to be i386/i486/i586 series. I searched it all over the internet and all links lead to same old incompatible version on google chrome page. where can i find the compatible version. (i clicked 64bit fedora (.rpm) option so thats not a problem)

You must have a 32 bits version of Fedora installed.

This command will tell what platform are you running

uname -p

The 32 bits link for Google Chrome is this:
