Creation and burning of Safecoins

I’ve read the paper as well as some forum threads. If I got it right, a user needs to pay to PUT things on the Network (this payment is made in SAFEcoins). These SAFEcoins used to pay the Network are then burned. On the other hand, the farmers are paid in SAFEcoins for their Proof-of-Resources (this SAFEcoins are created to pay them). This process can be call recycling (the users don’t pay farmers directly, but indirectly).

Is it right?

You got the gist. This is an old paper but the overall concept you described is the same.

So lets say I use a search engine like google, would I have to pay for each search with safe coins ?

You don’t pay to browse.
