This sounds very complicated or at least cumbersome. I guess it's somewhat
fair. Google require some legwork in order for new, yet untrusted domains to
be recognised and honoured.
They say that one day we may simply submit our Web pages to Google rather
host them on the Web. Lo and behold: Google are offering services for Web
page creation (no, not Blogger and Blogspot).
