It appears their numbers beat expectations. Shares are currently up 9% in after hours trading.

Is anyone surprised?

This just justifies what webmasters have known since the Mayday change... the change was made for investors.

Wonder if an uptick in unemployment would correlate with each increase in GOOG earnings? That cash is coming from somewhere else!

Is there a source online for that data? According to Comscore, Google's share of search has gone up [webmasterworld.com...]

When they make such a profit I must have paid too much for my ads. Google - give me my money back!

a lot more people going to Y to do stuff other that search with a much lower average revenue per visitor.

That graph would need to go for at least 2 years to show a real decline. The line there now looks more like a seasonal trend.

Geez, remember the big adwords ban that happened this past year? Well, guess it was worth it for google to drop all the shady adwords accounts to clear the way for legitimate advertisers huh? Wow, I always love the spin the scammers put out when they get hit where it hurts.....

Drop the shady stuff and increase profits! I love this as a share holder! Keep it on google!

I believe Compete dot com data are mostly for traffic from USA and other few countries.

Google is a way of life in many other parts of the world, that people do not even think of trying other search engines directly!. (I mean they may use Bing if integrated with facebook and other websites, but not much go to Bing to do a search).

I had a question about the WebmasterWorld community about the G numbers. Here is a quote from the Globe and Mail [theglobeandmail.com...]

During a conference call with analysts, Google said sales of its display ads, which include those on YouTube, are on a pace that would translate to $2.5-billion annually. Its mobile advertising businesses are on pace to bring in $1-billion in revenue annually. The figures are the most specific Google has released about the two emerging businesses.


They've been quoting these 2 figures all over the news. But I don't understand what is meant by "display ads". Is this all of AdSense? Or is this some other technology?

As for the mobile ads, I am surprised at the number. Could G be moving away from being a one trick pony (AdWord/AdSense)?

Display generally means banner/graphic ads.
