Google’s Third Quarter 2008 Financial Results Better Than Forecast

20th Oct 2008 News, Industry News Less than a minute to read


Despite the general slow down in the global economy, Google continue to buck the trend with an impressive set of financial results for the third quarter of 2008.

The company reported total revenues of $5.54 billion for the quarter ending 30th September 2008. This is an increase of 31% compared to the same period in 2007.

For the UK specifically, Google reported revenues of $776 million. I’m sure that with their recent announcement to allow gambling advertising within AdWords to, ahem, “bring inline with the legal and cultural climate around this issue within the UK” that this figure will continue to rise.
