How do I export the contacts backed up in iTunes from a MacBook to a Google account?

If your contacts show in your Mac's Address Book, you first have to select them all. Do this by pressing ⌘A, or going to Edit » Select All.

Then, go to File » Export and select the Export vCard… option.

Then, save this file on your Desktop. Open up Gmail, navigate to Contacts, and select Import from the more menu.

Select your .vcf file that you created on your Desktop and upload it. Google will import all your contacts. Note that this will not synchronize contacts. You can also set up Google account synchronization from your Address Book preferences if you want.
