Also, if the practice of measuring professional influence by things like impact factors and number of citations spreads (like some other things -- e.g. equating grantsmanship and scholarship) from the sciences to the humanities, this could have a very material impact on people's professional lives. Articles that one can access directly from google scholar are likely to be more frequently read and cited, just as a matter of convenience, than those that require a few to many more steps (depending on the quality of the library resources to which the potential user has access) to access.
