SAN FRANCISCO, April 20 (Reuters) - Google Inc. (GOOG.O: Quote, Profile, Research), the world's largest Web search supplier, on Thursday said net income jumped as revenue rose 79 percent, fueled by market share gains against rivals such as Yahoo Inc. and Microsoft Corp.

Net income for the first quarter rose to $592 million, or $1.95 per diluted share, compared with the year-earlier quarter's $372 million, or $1.29 per diluted share. Revenue rose 79 percent to $2.25 billion -- compared with Wall Street forecasts for 63 percent to 78 percent growth.

Excluding one-time items and stock-based compensation, Wall Street analysts were looking for a consensus profit of $1.98 per share.

You can normally tell how well a company will do just from your own advertising account. ;)
