Export Mac Address Book as a comma separated value (CSV) file.  Them import  the CSV file into Gmail Contacts Manager.

this is what's written in apple address book help: "You can't export information from Address Book in LDIF format; you can only import it. Address Book can import and export vCards."
It doens't mention csv.
help

there is free software that can convert the apple address book into CSV format - i've found it in google help in the past, so i know it's in here somewhere!  seems crazy they don't have a  simpler option, like many of the places where you need to import your address book!

See http://lifehacker.com/software/featured-mac-download/import-your-contacts-to-gmail-with-address-book-to-csv-exporter-259400.php

The free software is called AddressBook2CSV Exporter. It's advertised as 2 click. In reality, I had to manually import the .csv contact file it created.

But the actual import worked like a charm and all the fields lined up correctly, and automatically.

As ususal, make sure to back up before any big imports/deletes.

Click which group of contacts or the individual contact you want to export from your Address Book on your Mac (e.g. "All Contacts" or "John Doe").  From the File menu select Export.  Click "Export Group vCard" or "Export vCard" depending on whether you are exporting a group of contacts or just a single contact.  Save vCard file to a known location.

From Gmail click "Contacts".  Click the "Import" link on the right side of the screen.  Click "Browse" and find the location of the vCard file you saved above.  Click the "Import" button.

Note: Macs do not use CSV files, and you don't need to use conversion software, as mentioned in other posts.  Import/Export on a Mac using vCard files.
