Google Base | What am I missing?

It is amazing how much buzz Google Base has received but I honestly don't see why in the world I would want to use it. What's the killer app? What's the one unique advantage of Google base? Why would I as a user want to go there? Does it do anything better than any of the existing services?

I think the answer is a clear NO!

I just tried to search for some items such as a "BMW in San Francisco" and the results are crap! It just looks like spam. Sure, Google is just at the very beginning of building a base in user generated content, but so far I am rather disappointed.

I am getting the feeling that Yahoo! is actually a bit smarter than Google in the area of community and user generated content. However, none of them come close to eBay or craigslist. In fact, Google base makes me yawn. I think it is the worst site that Google has launched in a while. Then again, perhaps I am missing something.

Yeah, totally agree. It seems like they've over-engineered so much of it that it's going to be useless as a mashup target.

I make your words my words. It simple doesn't have a point at all! Just like a big drawer full of stuff.

I kind of feel that it's still too early to gauge how well google base will do. My take is that it's just another way for people to get sporadic or bits of information indexed. Traditionally, the only way anyone could find information in a structured way on the web was if you had a website/blog which was crawled or listed. I guess not everyone has a site/blog and there's a lot out there, text, audio, video etc which is not structured and managed. My personal take is it could be aconvenient and useful way to get stuff indexed...although i have yet to see any results from my listings on Base...

I think you grossly underestimate the power *and* the purpose of Google Base. Think semantic net, think gathering info on popular records not yet fathomed, think detection and analysis of spam...
