Google Base ?

Hum ! http://www.google.com/base and http://base.google.com are both giving us a Forbidden 403. The Robots.txt file did not have a entry for it for the moment.

What will be this new service ? One of thoses definitions ? I don't think it's one of thoses. Will probably see it in the next few days.

Base/root: (linguistics) the form of a word after all affixes are removed; "thematic vowels are part of the stem"


Update Oct. 25 :
Seem to be a database area where you can put any sort of data. A kind of Google CMS (content management system) or GoogleSQL. It will been crawl by Google and if your data are pertinent it may will show up in Google search engine results, Google Maps/Local or Froogle ! Screen shots worth 1000 words :





Note: The Base site is not working for the moment.

As an affiliate marketer – this will really take away from from my eBay commission business. Why? There are thousands of people like myself who target certain keywords using Google Adwords and make commission by linking to eBay to make a commission. Now I have a feeling those ads will be replaced with the Google Base Ads.

This can be an interesting turn – perhaps Google will have some affiliate program?!

I started a new forum where we can all discuss Google Base. I hope that you all join me in this!
