How many times a day you use a search engine (please RT).

Based on how search engines work (keep the index fresh, store the data to be queried) a pay-per-use approach is not sustainable

How much are you willing to pay for subscription for a search engine per month per person ?
(see the previous pool)

Pay-per-search does not work as the only revenue to cover infrastructure because you need to pay for hosting / renting anyway so that it is available when someone needs it.
