14$ billion divide by 1 billion unique ips per month (i'm guessing about 600-700 million "real" users). That means Google makes $20 out of every person that visits a Google property.. every 3 months.
Nothing's ever free is it..

Steal from the poor, keep for themselves. With their big increase, don't you think we'd be seeing an increase too? Nope, they just clipped our long tail, fed it through their ad network partners and sucked us dry.

Google better look for a revenue model that is not based on ads. And so should any webmaster.
Another three or four years and the party wiil be over and most of the people will use adblockers.
