Infographic: How Google Makes its Money

26th Jan 2012 News, Industry News Less than a minute to read

It’s no secret that Google makes more money than some countries. Last year their revenue reached a staggering $37.9 billion across multiple channels, including search advertising, display ads and services. But where did all that money come from?

The infographic below, created by Wordstream, highlights the advertising spend across all major markets in America and includes the top advertisers in each industry. Finance and insurance is the biggest sector, spending $4 billion, with retailers and general merchandise second coughing up $2.8 billion for ad space. You can also see what the most popular and, consequently, expensive keywords are in each sector, although please note that this is specific to the U.S. market.

    Why Bing is a Valuable Paid Media Platform

    For a long time, Bing, the UK’s second-largest search engine, has been underappreciated and, in some instances, even ignored.  Often regarded as the inferior search engine to market leader Google, Bing has historically struggled to appeal to many in the digital world. Most PPC analysts would give justified reasons for neglecting Bing for so long; these include the volume of traffic and the user experience just not matching up to Google. However, the validity of these assessments is now diminishing. Bing has grown and improved rapidly in the last couple of years; if you are not integrating it into your comprehensive digital marketing plan, you run the risk of missing out on a large portion of your chosen market and significant revenue.
