I consider Google Base as a site for online classified ads like the Craigslist. Some bloggers call it as an online marketplace like eBay without the auctions.

Google describes Google Base as “a place where you can easily submit all types of online and offline content that Google will host and make searchable online”.

You can use Google Base to post items that you want to sell; other users can search the Google Base database to find items they want to buy. When a match is made, you and the other user arrange payment and shipping between yourselves.

Quick Facts about Google Base

  • Cost: Free
  • How to Submit: You can submit information about all types of online and offline content to Google Base, by either the standard web form or, if you have more than 10 items to submit, via a data feed. When you submit information via the web form, you can attach up to 15 digital files in the following formats: PDF (.pdf), Microsoft Excel (.xls), Text (.txt), HTML (.html), Rich Text Format (.rtf), Word Perfect (.wpd), ASCII, Unicode and XML. Please note: the files you upload may not exceed 20 megabytes total in size, and we reserve the right to review all items in order to ensure they comply with the Google Base Terms and Conditions.
  • Languages: Google Base is currently available in English and German interfaces.
  • Reach: Items you submit to Google Base might be found on Google properties like Google or Google Product Search.
  • How it’s different: Google Base enables you to add attributes describing your content, so that searchers can easily find it. The more popular individual attributes become, the more often we’ll suggest them when others post the same items. Similarly, items that become more popular will show up as suggested item types in the Choose an existing item type drop-down menu.  

Why Should You Use Google Base?

If you have information you want to share with others but aren’t sure how to reach them, Google Base is for you. You can easily submit all types of online and offline content to Base, and if your content isn’t online yet, we’ll put it there. You can describe any item you post with attributes, which will help people find it when they do related searches. In fact, based on your items’ relevance, users may find them in their results for searches on Google Product Search and even our main Google web search. The main benefits of Google Base include:

  • Free content hosting
    Google Base represents a new opportunity to put any kind of content online, even if it isn’t a web page.
  • Distribution
    By bringing offline content online, Google Base is more accessible and useful. Even online content becomes more ‘discoverable’ when users are able to refine their search results based on attributes. You can also link users to your own website, thus making your content far more accessible to the world.
  • Ease of Use
    Now you can go to one place to upload content to Google. You can post individual items by completing a simple web form or submit a data feed with ten or more items in standard formats such as TSV, RSS 1.0 and RSS 2.0.

Best of all, Google Base is entirely free. And you’re always in control; you can edit or archive your items whenever you want.

Google’s goal is to organize the world’s information, and that includes almost anything you might want to contribute, whether it’s your store inventory, collection of original poetry, or research paper on cancer receptors. You can submit your information using either the standard web form or, if you have more than 10 items to submit, via google data feed options.

Wishing you fun with Google Base,
