Google became a domain registrar

http://www.ginside.com/2006/7/domain...ion-what-next/

Domain Registrar Accreditation — What Next?

Not many people knew, including myself for a while, but about a year ago Google became a domain registrar. They went through the whole accreditation process to become accredited so they could sell domains. Wait, Google, sell domains? Yeah, you might think crazy…but it’s true. Well, only partially true. Google is a registrar, but they haven’t sold a single domain in the time they have been accredited.

Instead of selling domains, they were feeding off of the information given to them because of the status of ‘Registrar’. ICANN provides valuable information to domain registrars and only to registrars. In a recent ICANN Domain Name Workshop, we learned just that little bit more about why Google went through the process. They went through the process to gain that valuable information and to be able to use it. As consumers, such as myself and you, we don’t have access to this information — and I say ‘this information’ because to this day I still don’t know what that entails. Google finds value in this information so they are staying accredited.

Re: Google became a domain registrar

They did this so they could get access to the entire whois database, so they can tell who owns every domain indexed in Google.

You see, as far as they're concerned, if you have 1000 websites, then the quality MUST be lower than someone who only owns one, so they downgrade all your sites in their index.

Trust me, I can show you the horrendous dip in the revenue graph.
