Google Base

Wednesday, November 16, 2005

Google Base seems to be very interesting.

One good aspect is the use of RSS 1.0 (RDF based) for bulk uploads (although they also accept tab-delimited, RSS 2.0 and Atom files). But note that the examples and templates are using RSS 2.0.

One bad (?) thing about customizing labels (to better describe your item) is that your labels have to use their namespace, which leads to potential collisions.
