This is like spyware, but its not on your computer. Its on those of others whose services you use. An undisclosed "fee," perhaps or a license give for passage?

People have no idea how much control Google has over the Internet. Their PageRank algorithm literally controls the flow of traffic on the Internet. And the public has almost no transparency into it. How can we without opening the system up to fraud and abuse?


The thing that Google should really watch out for is adjusting PageRank in response to whether a website uses its ad network. That would pretty much be anticompetitive conduct.
