what googlebase doesn\'t like

I checked in at GoogleBase this morning and found that all of my articles were inactive, bar 3 which had been disapproved (and guess what topic they covered :))

In the past I’ve been able to search and find them, not so today. I renewed my bulk upload and it was instantly accepted.

Problems remain however and Google doesn’t seem to be tackling the issues

I’m not sure I quite “get” GoogleBase just yet – in as much as Google is already indexing my sites so why do I need to submit my content all over again into this system… and who would actually use it to find stuff – surely the standard Google Search Engine is doing a good enough job?

I received my newsletter from the phpClasses today and noticed that there was a tool to make it easier to upload articles and information to GoogleBase so I thought I’d give it a try.

PhpBase

The code is still quite new and there are only a few options but it’s easy enough to extend and use. Documentation is needed and I’m sure it will follow. Given that the author appears to be Spanish I think it’s already pretty good.
