the-pulse-icon.jpgThe 33rd edition of the Search Pulse is now available for download. After taking a week off because of the Search Marketing Expo conference - we came back to discuss many topics. We covered the SMX conference and Search Engine Watch turning ten. We also looked at the new Ask.com interface, the Google and Yahoo updates and the recent privacy concerns over Google. We discussed many other topics. The topics we covered are listed below, in order of priority (based on search community buzz). You can download the MP3 file and listen at your convenience.

I would say weekly. Daily will become way to cumbersome.

Weekly is good. The show is long, but you can listen to it in pieces via podcast or the mp3 player. I like having one download to iTunes per week. :)
