---- Google "Trusted Store" rating service for ecomm sites

To participate in the program, merchants voluntarily share data about shipments, and Google collects customer service metrics when shoppers seek Google’s help with a problem.
Lol, when's Google going to roll out a "this site is worth" button too? It's like a bad joke. There is already a BBB (better business bureau) with LEGAL capacity to act on complaints, is Google trying to steal their thunder?
WARNING - To anyone considering using this, Google has a history of gathering data and then using that data to replace the service it was monitoring. Ask yourself if you trust giving Google such detailed information about your customers before you pin on their badge, it has SERIOUS implications for the entire internet.
Did anyone else notice that the Google blog says BabyAge.com and Beach Audio are examples starting today but neither site is showing a Google badge and both are showing facebook prominently? Too funny. The comments on the post are currently turned off, probably due to negative responses... /shrug
