According to Reuters,
Web search leader Google Inc. on Thursday posted an industry-leading 110 percent rise in quarterly profits as the company dodged the slowing growth trend that has hurt rivals Yahoo and eBay.
Google increased profits 110%, with revenues up 77 percent to $2.46 billion.
Reuters compares Google to others, noting it grows 3-4 times faster than the other majors:
Debate is raging over whether Google — which enjoys growth rates three-to-four times faster than other major Internet companies — is vulnerable to slowing industry growth trends or is itself a disruptive force taking share from rivals. On Tuesday, rival Yahoo Inc. postponed an upgrade to an advertising system designed to compete with Google and its shares suffered its biggest one-day percentage decline ever.
With approximately 32% of advertising revenues paid out to AdSense partners, that means webmasters earnings were up 110% for the quarter, too. There are a whole lot of webmasters getting used to Google’s earnings growth.
