What search engine user spends the most money???

Alexa disappeared

I have read a lot recently about setting up a mininet of sites and I am unsure about the specifics of doing it. I have a furniture site that seems like a good candidate.

In an open letter to Google written by Sam Sugar, and appearing on his SugarBank blog, suggests the Google Wallet would be a perfect tool for adult-related Internet purchases. He provides a number of sound reasons why this would be a good move for Google, financially and otherwise.
