The nineteenth edition of the Search Pulse is now available for download. In this edition we had a bit of technical difficulty with keeping the phone lines up, but we did discuss many topics. They included Rand Fishkin's proposal on TV. We also talked a bit about the Google Sitelinks update, a Phrase ReRank algorithm, StumbleUpon and AdSense. We talked about techniques to use when re-launching a web site. Plus many more fun topics with Google, Yahoo!, Microsoft Live Search and some SEO tips. 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.
