Obviously bash cannot time how long it takes you to type this.  That's
going to be the longest part, right?

Once a command starts running, then sure, you can time how long it takes
to finish running.  Simply write a wrapper script and ensure that your
vim typing calls the wrapper.  This may be as simple as putting a wrapper
named googler in ~/bin/.  Inside the wrapper, you can use "time" or
something else to perform the measurement.

Sounds like a job for time.
