Am I telling Google too much?

I recently set up my site's shopping cart to link up with Google Analytics.

Firstly, the data it gives me is excellent, however, I started to become "paranoid".

Basically, Google will now know the income produced from specific pages, and their associated "page value". Therefore, I started to think will Google use this data to alter SERP positions?

I might just be being over-paranoid here, however, does anyone else here have views on this?

No, that would be economic suicide for them and their shareholders.

Far more likely, if any info is collected at all, it is used in a larger metric for machine learning.
