New Google domains hint at "Google Express"

A handful of domains were transferred to Google today -- all of which are likely related.  The one that sticks out is "Google-Express.com" though -- it sounds like the service it is referring to will be used for something "fast" or to "expedite" something.  Here is the complete list of domains transferred to Google:

GOOGLE-EXPRESS.COM
GET-ME-ON-GOOGLE.COM
GETMEON-GOOGLE.COM
GETONGOOGLE.NET
GETON-GOOGLE.COM
GET-ON-GOOGLE.COM
GETUSONGOOGLE.COM
GETUONGOOGLE.COM
UONGOOGLE.COM
YOUONGOOGLE.COM

The others are clearly trying to get us "on Google" -- but what does that mean?  I am going to take a guess and say it means "to be indexed".

Now here comes the speculation.  Given this group of new domains, Google may be getting ready to provide a pay service for webmasters that will help in the quest to "get on Google".  If this is indeed what is happening, the service would probably guarantee faster crawl/indexing speeds.

Google Webmaster Tools already lets you control how fast your pages are crawled -- but the option for fast indexing cannot be used for most websites (it is disabled by default).  The only two options available for me are "normal" and "slower".


Of course, the meaning of these domains could be something altogether different from what I have predicted -- you never know!  What is your guess?
