How did they do so well?

I know, I know!

The sandbox. Wait until all the insiders unload, sandbox is released, AdWords collapses. Greed is going to kill them.

At the moment, it's the lead story on reuters.com with a new msn search banner right above it. Coincidence they posted big news quarterly earnings on MSN's D-Day? They're getting damned good or lucky with coincidences.

They did extremely well, let's cheer "google", go "Goog" Go, it's well deserved raise.

I think they had an exceptional quarter because of season, Adsense and their ability to realise the importance of webmasters :).

In another bullish sign, Google generated 51 percent — $530 million — of its fourth-quarter revenue from its own Web sites. Advertising on its own sites is more valuable to Google because it doesn’t have to share the money with its business partners.

So adwords is doing much better than adsense?
