I use Google Bookmarks and all of my bookmarks are organized into lists.

When i hit export.. this is the file. and this is all i get:

<!DOCTYPE NETSCAPE-Bookmark-file-1>
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
<TITLE>Bookmarks</TITLE>
<H1>Bookmarks</H1>
<DL><p>
</DL><p>

How could I export my Google Bookmarks ?

@downvoter downvote me after you can solve my problem –  Pacerier Jul 26 '11 at 21:16
    
Are you sure you are not using lists? –  phwd Jul 26 '11 at 21:38
    
@phwd what do you mean? of course i'm using lists –  Pacerier Jul 27 '11 at 17:08
    
It's probably because your question leaves out a lot of information. You only now mention in the comments that you're using lists. Where is that in the body of the question? –  Eight Days of Malaise Jul 27 '11 at 19:13
    
@Eight it's weird to mention that I use lists since, well don't everyone uses list !? –  Pacerier Sep 12 '11 at 9:15

The problem is that you are using lists.

You cannot export lists.

As seen in the following example

A list for waffles

<!DOCTYPE NETSCAPE-Bookmark-file-1> 
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=UTF-8"> 
<TITLE>Bookmarks</TITLE> 
<H1>Bookmarks</H1> 
<DL><p> 
<DT><H3 ADD_DATE="1269610508467000">Unlabeled</H3> 
<DL><p>

do you mean you don't use lists? how do you organise your bookmarks then? –  Pacerier Jul 28 '11 at 8:04

Works for me. This is what I did:

  1. Go to https://www.google.com/bookmarks/
  2. Select "All" so that all bookmarks are checked
  3. Click "Export bookmarks" in the left column
  4. Download HTML file with bookmark data

No need to select all. Export bookmarks seems to export all bookmarks. –  phwd Jul 26 '11 at 21:32
