Google has updated its online Calendar service by making it possible for people to publish their calendars for others to see. Calendars created can be given a webpage or can be incorporated into websites or blogs.

Publishing a calendar could prove useful especially to event organizers or project leaders. Google provides examples of racing schedules and FIFA World Cup match ups.

The company provides a walk-through of how to set up and publish a calendar to a website or blog.

You can add a Google Calendar event reminder button to your site by inserting a special snippet of HTML into your page. Users who click on your button can quickly save your event on their Google Calendars, which will help remind them about your event and about your website.

Google launched its Calendar product in mid-April WebProNews’ David Utter has the details.
