Google Profits on the Up & Google+ respect from SEO Exeter
Search Engine Giant Google has seen a huge rise in profits and revenue which beat all forecasts from the Market.
Google’s Revenue rose 32% to approximately £6.2bn, and net profit for the previous quarter to June rose 36% from the same quarter in 2010 to £1.5bn.
Google+ was launched as the Search Engines social networking answer to Facebook. Google was more than happy with these results and is using it as a bit of a smokescreen to cover some of the initial criticism of Google+ not really competing with the dominance of Social Media leader Facebook.
Unsurprisingly Larry Page is quite happy with the results, given this was his first quarter at the helm of the Search Engine after succeeding Eric Schmidt in April this year after 10 years.
Investors seem to believe that Mr. Page’s appointment will breath more life back into the Search Engine and show that the company is very much moving in the right direction. Shares in Google were up 11% on these trading results.
Mr. Page was quoted as saying:
“We had a great quarter…”
“I’m super excited about the amazing response to Google+…”
Here in the Skyline Marketing office, we are still on the fence when it comes to how much Google+ can really take away from the dominance of Facebook – however certainly in the business world – everyone wants to be ranking top of the Google Search Engine Results, so is anyone really going to dismiss something that may well have an influence in Search Engine Rankings in years to come?
I think it would be foolish to be working hard on Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and ignore the obvious growth in Social Media, and even more so given the respect that a SEO Company in Exeter, Devon, the UK or the World must show if we are all to succeed in a very difficult World out there at present.
Everyone at Skyline Marketing wishes you a great weekend from the world of SEO Exeter & Internet Marketing.
