Comment Re:good positioning for google (Score 1) 242

Eventually people will start talking about paying a "google tax". Businesses will need to recover the expense of advertising and the expense of the transaction. Guess who they will recover it from?

And that's how payment proccessors work. Whether a merchant uses GBuy, Paypal, Verisign, or deals with Visa/MC/Amex/Disover directly, they all charge money. So unless an e-tailer makes you send cash in the mail, (and then you have the "Post office tax") somebody is paying that fee somewhere.
Likewise with advertising. Unless you depend on word-of-mouth and good press, advertising costs money whether it's with Google, the radio, tv, or the newspaper.

Research is to see what everybody else has seen, and think what nobody else has thought.
