During an interview at Google headquarters last week, Salar Kamangar, Google's vice president for product management, said the new service was experimental and cautioned against viewing it as a imminent assault on the classified advertising business because it could be used in far broader ways.
Still, several industry executives and analysts said they believed that Google Base was an aggressive first step in a series of maneuvers that would position the company as a powerful player in the $100 billion annual market for classified advertising

I added 14 items (informational pages), the index from one site and the index plus 12 subject pages for another site.
Only two pages remain -- the indexes for the two sites.
My "inactive items" link shows a count of 12, but when I click the link I get a page that says "oops -- can't find the page."
For example you can use a little script do make a daily xml file with all the new items you have on your website. Then you just have to dump it on google base once a day.
I started using google years ago, because I "trusted" the results that came from it as a search tool. (I'm sure the average user doesn't know or think about the science behind search engine optimisation)
If big players just dump content on it, it will be like the worlds biggest and most boring classifieds and difficult to search through. Don't know how they're going to make it user friendly.
