the-pulse-icon.jpgThe 38th edition of the Search Pulse is now available for download. In the 38th edition of the Search Pulse, Chris, Ben and I discussed several exciting topics. Yahoo and Microsoft both made major changes to their search interfaces and their search algorithms. Google turned nine years old last week, as did Ben and Danny - well they didn't turn 9, but they had birthdays. We asked the question, why does a search engine have a submission form when they really don't use it? We also discussed how search engines handle 301 redirects. This was a quick 30 minute show, so we were not able to cover everything. 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.

Topics We Covered:
