How long will it take google to acknowledge that I've changed my webpage title?

It depends. The next time Google spiders your page it will pick up the new title tag.

Between a few hours and never. (Although, it's more likely to be somewhere in between.)

Well I always resubmit my sitemap via GWMT, though whether it helps I could not say, but it can't hurt so why not!

Doing onpage SEO and waiting for SE's to re-index accordingly is like watching a kettle, and as the saying goes... "a watched kettle never boils!"

What I've found to be true most of the time is that the more often you make a change to a page, the more often it's going to be spidered. That is, if each time the spider comes around it notices a change, the SE will change the crawling schedule to come by more often. For example, the main page of the forum was last cached by Google on June 21, and the site's home page (which obviously doesn't get updated every day, as the forum does) was cached on June 19.

But I don't think it's worth the trouble of doing this just to get the engine to pick up on one important change. That is, I wouldn't spend a month editing a page every day just so that when I made a change that mattered to me I'd have reason to believe it would be picked up quickly.

And by the way, I've never tested this by making just a tiny change, like switching one word from singular to plural every day. I've just noticed that pages that happen to get updated more often get spidered more often.
