Right on the heels of Google [[http://google.com/analytics|Analytics]]’s launch comes the [[http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2005/11/first-base.html|launch]] of Google [[http://base.google.com|Base]]. What is it? Here’s the official quote:
>Google Base enables content owners to easily make their information searchable online. Anyone, from large companies to website owners and individuals, can use it to submit their content in the form of data items. We’ll host the items and make them searchable for free.
Given that I’m yet to see a _single_ report of people actually getting any data out of Analytics, even after 30+ hours, I’ll retain my judgement on Base. It could be a competitor for Craig’s list and Ebay some day, but not today. As for Analytics, I’m sure the results will //eventually// come in, but if Google can’t handle this load, who would?
