Are you a real estate company, agent, broker or investor looking to gain more exposure on your real estate properties? Have you thought about the idea to submit your properties online to Google Base? If not, then let me tell you why Google Base is a great place to list your real estate properties.

According to Google, Google Base is a place where you can easily submit all types of online and offline content, which they will make searchable on Google (if your content isn't online yet, they will put it there). If you have real estate properties and you want to submit them to Google Base, you can describe any real estate property you post with attributes; these attributes will help people find your property when they do related searches. In fact, based on your items' relevance, users may find them in their results for searches on Google Product Search, Google Maps and even their main Google web search.

If you're interested in submitting your real estate properties to Google Base, you can have us automate the entire process for you and we'll submit them three times a week or you can follow the steps (provided by Google Base) below to perform a bulk upload.
Overview

Bulk upload files are a convenient way to create multiple items in Google Base. Bulk upload files are assigned an item type, which classifies the bulk upload file according to what sort of items it contains. Once you've created your file, you will upload it to Google Base. After your file is processed, your items will be added to Google Base.

Creating and submitting your bulk upload file can be done in just four steps:

Select Item Type
You begin the process by choosing an item type based on the collection of items your bulk upload contains. There are over a dozen to choose from, including common types such as Products, Vehicles, Jobs, and Recipes. Each item type is associated with its own set of standard attributes, which define the characteristics of your items. The predefined item types include a list of common attributes and bulk upload file samples. You can also define your own custom item type if needed.

Create Bulk Upload
This step begins with choosing the format of your bulk upload file - tab-delimited or XML. Comparisons of these two formats along with examples are provided. You will then add your item data and save the bulk upload file, which is now ready to be registered and uploaded in your Google Base account.

Register Bulk Upload
After creating the file, you must register it in your Google Base account. This lets our system know to expect your file, and what item type it is.

Submit Bulk Upload
Once you've registered your file, you will need to upload it to your Google Base account. This can be done from within Google Base itself or via FTP (File Transfer Protocol). These two methods are discussed to help you decide which one to use. Your items will be added to and appear in Google Base after your file is successfully uploaded and processed. In general, this takes up to 24 hours.
