Matt Cutts of Google has agreed to come on the show here and there to talk about one or two of the topics we covered the past week at the Search Engine Roundtable. Matt Cutts will be live for the first time on The Search Pulse this Tuesday, between 5pm - 6pm (EST) October 3rd. Currently, I do not know exactly what time Matt will be on exactly, but it will be between 5 and 6pm during the show.
I have one topic at hand that Matt will respond to directly. I only am giving Matt 5 minutes max to talk about the topic. Then I may ask Matt one more topic and then move on to other topics without Matt.
It is possible that we get other guests on from different search engines during the same show. I am working on Tim Mayer from Yahoo, Jim Lanzone or Gary Price from Ask.com and Ramez Naam from MSN (now Live) Search.
The goal is to get a bit more information directly from the "horses mouth," if you will, on the topic at hand.
One thing for sure is that I won't reveal which topics we will discuss prior to the show. I also won't be telling you in the future when these guest will be coming on the air. My goal is to have at least one search engine representative come on for at least five minutes each show. Who will it be? When will it be? Will there be several representatives? What are the topics? All questions I won't address prior to the show.
Why? Because (1) the content is fresh, we only discuss topics that are less than one week old. I may not know until a few hours before who will be on the air and what topics they will talk about. (2) I like the element of surprise.
