In late 2007, Google had a simple idea: create a Wikipedia-style website with strong localized influence and power it with advertising. A Unit of Knowledge or Knol was born in July 2008. Nearly three years later, is anyone the wiser?
What is Google Knol? Google’s new project was built to enable users share information, much like the principal behind the ever-popular Wikipedia. When wiki’s first appeared on the web, they quickly grew in popularity. Today, there’s Google Knol, which is like a wiki, but also different. Google Knol allows anyone to publish information who thinks is important on the web, quickly, and alone or as part of a collaboration project. The articles in this topic show you how to make the most out of Google Knol.
Google Knol is an online database for any kind of publications contributed by users with a Google account. This is a Google Knol review that looks at the good side and the downside of the services and features offered.
