Part of the Internet applications glossary:

Google Base is an online database and free Web publishing service provided by Google that allows users to upload their own content. Posted content is searchable using the Google Base search engine, and may also be included in other Google databases such as Froogle and Google Local. Items published in this manner have unique Web addresses and can be viewed worldwide.

Anyone with a Google account can publish content on Google Base. Users can include attributes with the data, similar to the meta keywords in conventional Web page files, for search engine optimization SEO ). Once you've added your content you can edit or it at any time.

The interface is straightforward, and works with most Web browsers. As of this writing, Google Base does not support certain file formats typically downloaded rather than viewed directly on the Internet (such as PDF s), but image files can be posted in formats commonly viewable on Web browsers. Content is screened according to a standard editorial policy and a Terms of Service (ToS) agreement.
