Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

Some are suggesting that Google Base will suffer because it does not currently have a way to monitor seller reputation. Well, neither does eBay. eBay allows buyers to leave poor feedback whether or not they complete the purchase of an item. I suspect that eBay sellers will welcome Google with open arms.


Seemingly overnight, Google Base changed into the feature many Google watchers long suspected it was: an assault on the online retailing business, incumbents eBay, Amazon, Craigslist and others.

Now influencers such as Nik Cubrilovic are getting a first, and very important, impression of what Google’s got.

Cubrilovic wrote that the Google credit card payment feature is more intuitive, and faster, than at eBay and other online merchants.

But online consumers are used to reputation monitoring, an automated means to gauge the reputation of a buyer or seller. Without it, Google could suffer.
