Search engine optimization for small and very small businesses.

Introducing Google Base

Google Base (beta)Google Base, currently in Beta mode, is essentially Google’s version  of eBay, Craig’s List, and Shopzilla all rolled into one. It allows eCommerce vendors to submit pretty much anything, ranging from products to services to events. These listings are then displayed in Google One Box Results and also in Froogle (now called Google Product Search) results. OneBox results are normally displayed for products, and are sometimes displayed above organic search results and sometimes a little further down the page. Google will display only three OneBox results for any given keyword you type in, so there’s fierce competition for a top three spot. You can view these OneBox results yourself by typing a product into Google; try “Gibson guitars”. Look for the section headlined  “Shopping results for Gibson guitars”.
