The twenty-sixth edition of the Search Pulse is now available for download. We discussed our extremely comprehensive and detailed job covering the SES NY conference. We then had a 15 minute conversation about paid links based on some recent blog posts by Google's Matt Cutts. We had a brief conversation on Ask.com's new algorithm, Edison. Followed by yellow Google ads, a Google.com update, support for sitemaps autodiscovery, the DoubleClick acquisition and much more. 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.
You can listen to the MP3 file with our new player directly below:
