With Om Malik and Richard Scobel on GYM (Google, Microsoft and Yahoo) free diets, it is a appropriate to fill the void with some comments about the launch of Google Base and Google analytics. Both are interesting, noteworthy moves and I am going to have a play with them before the weekend.
Google Base allows anyone to host a database of products, items, information on Google's servers providing you are willing to have the items searched by everyone. It is going to have an impact in the medium and long term on vertical search portals like Autotrader.com and property listing.
Google Analytics offers high quality metrics and statistics data free of charge to anyone who is willing to use the service. It is based on tagging technology and will have an impact on anyone selling metrics or statistics packages in the business sector. I have tagged this site - www.chriskenyon.co.uk and look forward to sharing the results.
