the-pulse-icon.jpgThe twenty-first edition of the Search Pulse is now available for download. To kick off the show we had some discussion on our new design here at the Search Engine Roundtable. We then got into the Google Presidents Day update, followed by a Google patent application discussion. Microsoft had a large adCenter bug, and Yahoo! Search Marketing also had a PPC bug. We discussed the Google AdWords algorithm and many more topics. The topics we covered are listed below, in order of priority (based on search community buzz).
