How Google Product Search Works

Adding your items to Google Base

1. Upload your products using our content submission tool

You can upload your products either one at a time or with a data feed. You'll be taken to Google Base, our content submission tool, to submit your product information.

2. Users find you on Google Product Search

Your products will appear on Google Product Search and may be displayed on Your store and products will be shown to shoppers when they type in search terms relevant to your product offerings. Shoppers simply click on your listing to be brought to your site.

Ways to submit your products

We currently provide several options for you to submit your product information to us.

Single item

A simple web form will guide you through the item creation process. This is a good choice if you have just a few products. You can submit all the details about your content using a form that contains attribute fields you can use to describe your item for sale. All items created through the web form will be displayed on Google Base-hosted item pages.

Get started and post an item.

Data feed

When submitting more than 10 items, we recommend creating a data feed which contains all of your content in a single tab-delimited text or XML file. You can send us your data feed directly through your Google Base account, or by using File Transfer Protocol (FTP).

Get started and register your data feed. For more information, take a look at our data feed instructions.


The Google Base API is designed for developers with technical know-how who would like to integrate their applications with Google Base. Your application can upload new data, update or delete existing items, and query Google Base data to find matches for complex attribute criteria.

You may also submit products through a Google Product Search Partner.
