Indeed, revenue came in at $16.52 billion (£10.3 billion), which was up 20 per cent compared to Q3 in 2013.
Patrick Pichette, CFO of Google, boasted: "Google had another strong performance this quarter, with revenue up 20 per cent year on year, at $16.5 billion. We continue to be excited about the growth in our advertising and emerging businesses."
Site revenues hit $11.25 billion (£7 billion), again up 20 per cent, and partner sites generated $3.43 billion (£2.1 billion), up 9 per cent year-on-year. "Other" revenues totalled $1.84 billion (£1.15 billion), up 50 per cent.
