Well it’s been a bit since the last post over here on the Beanstalk SEO News Blog. I apologize for this as there’s been a few notable events. Unfortunatley one such event is that I’m currently in the process of moving and much of the “non-client time” I’ve had had been dedicated to carrying furniture and then rearranging it to get it into “the perfect spot”.
As announced, last week was the fourth installment of your truly on Webmaster Radio. I was in a bit of a tizzy right before the show and forgot to tape it. Fortunately they do and put it in the archives so you can listen to the show on the Webmaster Radio site here (you’ll also be able to listen to any past episodes you may have missed).
On the air we discussed a number of issues and I had the pleasure of interviewing both Jaime and Chris Cummings from Lycos. Jaime Riehle is the Senior Product Manager for Web Publishing and Chris is the Product Manager for the new Lycos Cinema. Chris and I chatted for most of out interview time covering Lycos Cinema, how it works, how it’s funded and where it’s heading. When Chris and I had the chance to chat we discussed the direction Lycos is heading in, the arrangement with Ask.com and he managed to nicely evade my question regarding whether Lycos will also be providing some results/services to Ask.com.
After the interview I had a chance to chat with Jim more on his experiences at PubCon in Vegas, Google, Yahoo, and MSN all agreeing to a Sitemaps XML standard and a few other notables. I’ll be sure to let you know when the full program is available to listen to on Webmaster Radio.
Until then, keep watching the Beanstalk blog. The house is getting settled and it’s back to business as usual.
