G'day Webmasters! Google Webmaster Central is excited to be heading to Sydney for Search Summit and Search Engine Room on March 1-2 and 20-21, respectively.

In addition to our coverage of topics in bot obedience and site architecture, we'll also provide a clinic for building Sitemaps, and chances to "chew the fat" with the Aussies in the "Google Breakfast" and "Google Webmaster Central Q&A." Our Search Evangelist, Adam Lasnik, will lead a fun session in "Living the Non 9-5 Life, Tips for Achieving Balance, Sanity...", where mostly, we hope to learn from you.

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.
