Update: The described product or service is no longer available.


Until today, you had to upload a file to your website to activate Google Friend Connect features and gadgets. Today, we're dramatically simplifying the Friend Connect setup process. To get started with Friend Connect features, all you have to do is submit your website's name and URL after logging into www.google.com/friendconnect.

To learn more about the recent updates to Google Friend Connect, check out our post on the Google Social Web Blog.

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.
