Google Base

May 18, 2006 at 4:23 pm 1 comment

I've been looking at the newly released Google Base site. At its simplest, its simply a user generated directory of links that are searchable using google's old search engine. But its rapidly becoming a competitor in the online classifieds world, competing with the likes of craigslist.org. So how is this useful to booksellers and book collectors? Well, a large number of sellers have already cottoned on to using Google Base, and a quick search for Rare Books in the search engine yields some very likely candidates. But even better, searches for particular items such as 'piranesi' or 'baedeker' give you a pretty good idea as to what's out there.

Give the base a whirl and see what you come up with. You might find it useful when hunting for books or when doing comparative pricing, or simply as another portal to add your stock to.
