Does someone know what really is google scholar? seems to be the future of google roll having knowledge base of almost everythin. Would it help someone in any ways? Plz tell me somethin if u knw about this...

So would people agree that this could be another way to submit your site to Google. But the bigger question is does this allow inner parts of your site to move up in the SERPs as this could be much beneficial for 30 day periods. I say 30 days because it appears on the Google Base page that your postings will last 30 days and I see how this could be great for people who have seasonal parts of their site.

Any thoughts or more knowledge of Google Base? before I start submitting parts of my site.

I'm wondering what Google Scholar is, too. Seems to me to be another way to give priority to the powers that be? To limit free speech? Just like their Google News. It gets put on top under 'News' so many, many people will go there and get the same corporate bull#*$! 'news' that we get on our fricking tv sets.

Google Scholar limits search results to published scholarly journals. It has nothing to do with GoogleBase.

It's useful. I have a friend who is a Materials Scientist. He uses it all the time.

You might think of it as a way of "giving power to the powers that be". A serious researcher who is only looking for information in established scholarly journals might see it as a godsend.

It's optional. It's your choice. It's a good way to avoid having to wade through thousands of amateur websites advertising family dentists, if you are an Endodontist wanting to brush-up (so to speak) on the latest techniques for microscopic surgery.
