The eleventh edition of the Search Pulse has now been archived. We were airing this live at SES Chicago, during the cocktail hour last night. We had hundreds of special guests all around us, some that got on the air included David Wallace and Rand Fishkin (SEOMoz). We talked about our third anniversary at the Search Engine Roundtable, we talked about the future of Search Engine Watch, Danny Sullivan and Chris Boggs, we also discussed various important topics of the week with Google, Yahoo, Microsoft MSN Live, and Ask.com. Oh, and I think I have about 4 Yo Yos left on me in Chicago, first come first serve (you can hit up Chris for some Yo Yos also). The topics we covered are listed below, in order of priority (based on search community buzz). You can download the MP3 file here and listen at your convenience.
