    Page speed improvement

    I have just made some changes to the images on my website to improve the site speed, which has worked, my site speed is now significantly better than before, but how long would it take google to notice this? i've been told before that if won't take effect until google cache's the site again, and I check this by clicking on the little down arrow in the google listing, will Google notice these changes when the cached page is updated? Or will the updates have already been noticed?

    Site speed isn't a massive factor in terms of ranking, you should do it more to please your users once they land on the site. Give it two weeks from doing the changes and usually Google has crawled a page and your changes would've been seen.

    IF you have doubt that google don't know about your latest changes, use fetch option from webmaster, it helps to quickly crawl your web page.
