After we first announced Google's intention to launch Knol, their knowledgebase, we learned yesterday that the project is finally live.

Here's a small little screenshot of Google Knol:

Will it be the Wikipedia killer, a many people have been wondering since Knol was announced last year? Well, so far, Knol is extremely medicine-focused and apparently has very bad navigation, according to forum members.

Will it be useful for SEO in the long term? If those results get spidered and ranked well in Google, it will have a traffic value, most likely. But the links are nofollowed as many forum members note.

Additional discussion is on Techmeme.

Forum discussion continues at DigitalPoint Forums.
