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.

According to Forbes, Google ranked 25th on the list of U.S. corporations that paid the highest taxes in 2012, with $2.6 billion in "income tax expense" and an effective tax rate of 19.4 percent.

According to Forbes, Google (and Apple) pay under 10% [forbes.com...]

furthermore...according to this Forbes graphic, G's effective tax rate is 0.1% which might as well be zero.

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.
