google webmaster tools page download speedThere has always been a lot of talk about page speed and Google rankings. There are several tools that Google has for documenting page speed and improving it. Google even has the features in Google Analytics and had it in Webmaster Tools.

But did you know, Google will show you how long it takes GoogleBot to crawl a specific page within Google Webmaster Tools?

Matt Storms shared those details on Google+. If you go to Google Webmaster Tools, and click on the "Fetch as Google" option under the "Crawl" menu, you will have access to such data.

First, submit a page for GoogleBot to fetch. Then when you see the "success" link, click on it and it will reveal the download time in milliseconds for the page to load for GoogleBot.

Here is the link you click after you see the word "success."
