Nice! Go G!
I hope this means continued solid payouts from G for their Adsense program for another quarter... =)

|Eric Schmidt said in a conference call with analysts, "Looking back at the quarter, it's obvious to us our model continues to work very well." |
That's how mature chief executives say, "BU-WA-HAHAHAHA!"
Think their stock will hit $700? I wouldn't bet against it. Lots of retail buying.

In some cases those numbers are matching how much our PPC cost went up. Good old days. 25c/click

Not sure if that was irony....
Solid as in... the concrete foundation of a building that stayed in place even after the rest has collapsed?
or there was a 600% boom in competition / decrease in advertisers / lower CPC in all the sectors I know of... my my, why is it that I always have to be in the control group. It's not much, just a 300% decrease over the same period with all else being the same, including competition, traffic, rankings, relevancy, CTR and even the ads. But what do I know? Good model though.

Here is a posting from Yahoo group.. is it true?
"Companies such as GM have formal hedging policies in place - for many many years. ALL of the FX exposure is usually 100% hedged. GOOG is new at the game and is growing so fast they haven't been able to hedge or even forecast their FX exposure. It is a moving target. They happend to have gotten lucky since the FX market moved their way. It could have been a $121M LOSS.
Don't expect massive swings going forward. Sooner or later they will be able to forecast and manage it. The poster is correct. Without the FX gain - they would have missed.
I do this for a living for 13+ years with major corporations."

I certainly would expect Google profits to be up when they threw the search results in into total disarray during the third quarter. Probably sent quite a few to Adwords forcing prices up all over.

Why resort to conspiracy scenarios? Online advertising expenditures are up, period. A rising tide may not lift all boats, but it certainly should lift the buoyant S.S. GOOGLE.

Everyone go into your adwords campaign, check the daily spend this month vs last 3 months, anyone notice how its up by over 10-15%?

wait until Q1 08 when they show first revs from the checkout.

why do you expect checkout revenues to be big? Care to explain what you think the math might look like?
