    If you google someone (or some company) and then select that person or company's sponsored link at the top of the page, will it cost that company money?

    Depends on how their contract with Google is structured. Some companies are charged by Google on a per-click basis, some monitor transactions from Google (actual business won), and some just pay a flat rate.

    In theory, sure. Determining if that is actually the case is somewhat more dubious.

    Also, that would probably be considered illegal in most jurisdictions.
