Google Base: Opportunity for Bloggers

Google Base service is now live. You can take advantage of this free Google service to advertise your home inventory, archives of Playboy magzines, mom's favorite cooking recipes or even your latest ebook on "Make more money with Adsense". Your customers can pay you in Dollars, Pounds, or Euros.

I think Bloggers and Website designers have a great opportunity here. They can advertise (or sell) their blog articles, website designs, blog templates and even offer consulting services. Adsense experts can offer advice to newbies on integrating Adsense in Blogs. The possibilities are endless.

Google Base will host your item details and images. It will then supply a unique URL (web address) where searchers can visit and view your content. This URL will be activated within a few hours after you publish your item.

You can submit multiple items to Google base using Bulk Upload. Google Base will accept bulk uploads in Tab-Separated, RSS 1.0, RSS 2.0 and Atom 0.3 formats. This means that content providers who already have RSS feeds can easily submit their content to Google Base without requiring much additional work.

You can describe any item you post with attributes, which will help people find it when they search Google Base. Depending upon your item, it may also be included in the main Google search index and other Google products like Froogle and Google Local.
