a custom search with the ability to earn money off the adsense ads would be nice. We would then see an explosion of vertical search engines, all powered by Google.

Win/win for everyone involved, I think.

Index bench could be a way to measure index sizes by doing random queries...

There's a relevant Google Talk on this on Google Video (but I can't find it!)

Here's the talk:

Random Sampling from a search engine's index – enables one to make good estimates of the index size.

IndexBench could be tools that measure the quality of an index....

Alexa more sounds like Google Trends but I doubt Google IndexBench is something real interesting. But what would that be?

The Alexa Web Search Platform is actually a way for third-parties to access Alexa's crawl data. You get access to the documents they used to generate their index.
