Daya Baran, president of WebGuild, let me know about an event that they are hosting on November 29 at Google.
* How web 2.0 companies can increase their traffic and ranking using search engines.
* Why all content can’t be tucked away behind a membership login?
* How to open up internal data to the search engines without compromising user privacy?
* Structural barriers limiting indexability and maximizing the spiderability of web sites.
It was billed as an alternative to O’Reilly’s upcoming Web 2.0 conference in San Francisco.

Since I am not invited to O’Reily’s Web 2.0 conference (like the rest of us), I’ve decided to attend the WebGuild event, especially since much of the content and speaker line-up is similar – not to mention the vast contrast in price, $239 compared to roughly $3,200.
