An inkling of sort was available when comScore made public its findings of Google totally dominating the global search scene. As much as 37.1 billion global searches including YouTube’s 5 billion were made through Google out of a total of 61 billion searches in August last.
In percentage terms Google’s global search share is an overwhelming 61% even as other search giants like Yahoo and MSN trail far behind. If you extrapolate August’s search figures for the quarter from July to September, Google’s search figures conveniently cross one hundred billion.
With so high use of its facility it is no wonder that Google’s results will also be eye-popping, which is mainly on account of its dominant share of online ad market.
Its Q3 results announced yesterday indicate that that its net earnings for the quarter has risen to $3.01 billion, a 61% jump year-on-year. The per-share earning also shows a healthy rise to $3.91. Incidentally, both the earnings beat the analysts’ estimates.
