Listen in - Matt Cutts and Vanessa Fox talk search

Wednesday, August 30, 2006 at 8:11 AM

Tune into Webmaster Radio Thursday, August 31 at 1 pm Pacific to hear Matt Cutts and me take over GoodKarma while GoodROI (Greg Niland), the program's regular host, is on vacation. We'll talk about a little of everything, including giving Danny Sullivan career advice (if he ever decides to get out of search -- which we hope he never does -- he can always pursue a career in song), Google's handling of words with accented characters, display date changes in Google cached pages, and the not-so-nice side of SEO.

And if you missed last week's show, check out the podcast. Danny Sullivan and I explained that everything you need to know about search marketing, you can learn by watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer. If you heard the show and are worried about Danny's favorite espresso machine shop, don't be. They're doing OK after all.

Congratulations! You've discovered botcoins, a new currency for webmasters! You can use botcoins for your daily searches, even without typing anything! (100 botcoins = 1 free search). To redeem your botcoins, simply find a Google Search Team member in person, hand over your botcoin certificate, and request your query. The Googler will then make the search for you. Note: Googler may ignore you or choose to search for a different phrase or topic if they are in a bad mood. And, currently no mining opportunities are provided for botcoins.
