Google Wants Your Content With New Google Base

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 7:09 am

In a move that could put Google in competition with eBay, the search giant is testing a new service that would allow people to post and make searchable any type of content, a Google spokeswoman confirmed Tuesday.

A screenshot of a page for “Google Base” gives as examples of items that can be posted to Google’s server: “description of your party planning service,” “articles on current events from your Web site,” “listing of your used car for sale,” and “database of protein structures.”

“This is an early stage test of a product that enables content owners to easily send their content to Google,” a Google spokeswoman wrote in an e-mail. “Like our Web crawl and the recently released Google Sitemaps program, we are working to provide content owners an easy way to give us access to their content. We’re continually exploring new opportunities to expand our offerings, but we don’t have anything to announce at this time.”
