Do you have products to sell and want to get them in Google? If so, then you should submit your products to Google Base. By submitting your products to Google Base, you'll essentially be submitting them to the Google search engine. Once your product feed is approved, your products will appear in areas such as Google Product Search, Google Base and in many cases, the Google search engine itself.

If you're a seller, it costs nothing to reach shoppers by submitting your items to Google Base. You can link directly from the Google search results to your website; if you don't have a website, Google will host your offers for free within your Google Base account.

There are many ways to submit your products to Google Base. Below I've compiled an outline of the top submission methods:

One at a time
- Have 10 or fewer products? Fill out the web form for each product you would like to sell and post to Google Product Search.

Bulk Upload - Upload a spreadsheet or XML file describing each product and its associated product data using the Google Base Bulk Upload. When you submit information via the web form, you can attach up to 15 digital files in the following formats: PDF (.pdf), Microsoft Excel (.xls), Text (.txt), HTML (.html), Rich Text Format (.rtf), Word Perfect (.wpd), ASCII, Unicode and XML.

API - Are you a developer? If so, you can code your way from your system to theirs. With the new Google Base data API, you can create specialized applications to handle these actions. Your application can upload new data, update or delete existing items, and execute specialized queries to find matches for complex attribute criteria.

Automated Product Submission - Tired a manually submitting your products online? Tired of creating and submitting your bulk upload product feeds on a regular basis? Want to sell more products online with Google Product Search? Then try the automated product submission and have all your products submitted to Google Base three times a week. The automated process will connect directly to your database, gather all the necessary product data, create your product feed, and submit it directly to your Google Base account three times a week... it's that simple! All you need to do is register your store for automated product submission.
