Do you have to wait before your pages are crawled again by google before any alternative texts will increase traffic through image searches?

I would say yes also...Just resubmit your sitemap...After I have made major changes I do that instead of waiting.

I never have to resubmit my sitemap, I get crawled every 3 to 7 days without doing so.

That is true for all of us.....There is no penalty for resubmitting so you get crawled sooner.

Thanks Emmy...He had some interesting points...Makes me feel better about where I am going with revamping my site...By the time I am finished there will be very few if any of my product images below the fold.
