Google Base Goes Live

Review: Sphere Beta + Screenshots

I’ve just been playing around with Google Base for a while now — and I’m not saying I love it, but it’s not too bad (easy to use at least). When the message went out I thought it would be some kind of a complicated thing which I won’t ever use again, but I have to say I was wrong. If you have a Google Account, you can use it with it.

The idea is very Googly. Google basically gives you almost full access to the GBase database and you can use it any way you like, post whatever you like. For my trial, I posted recent book review of Darknet by JD Lasica and it appeared within a few minutes and was made searchable within the database quite quicky last well (if you’re lucky, you should see it as the top result for this search).

 The best thing about Google Base, I think, is its flexibility. You can post any of the following:

- Course Schedules
- Events and Activities 
- Jobs 
- News and Articles 
- People Profiles 
- Products 
- Recipes
- Reference Articles 
- Reviews 
- Services 
- Vehicles 
- Wanted Ads

Obviously, when I saw ‘reviews’ that’s the best I had. Try it out for yourself. It may be that you use it every day from today on a regular regular basis or that you never use it again. In any case, if you still don’t know what Google Base is, the best and shortest way to describe is it that it’s a "user-powered search engine". Sounds a lot like social bookmarking, but it isn’t. You could say it is, in a way, actually, but without the bookmarking and instead of bookmarking URLs, you "bookmark" other things (or just post your own).
