The above-shared information is very informative and helpful as well. A few days ago, I was also searching for an approach with which I could convert my Microsoft Outlook Contacts into Gmail. Through Google search, I have come across SysTools vCard Export Tool. This utility can export Outlook contacts to Google Contacts, Yahoo Contacts, vCard & WAB file formats.

PS: The free demo version of the tool is also available. I found this tool very useful and efficient in my case as it is capable of migrating a large number of Outlook Contact files easily.
