Google posts full-year profits of $10.74bn as revenues top $50bn


Google has reported its Q4 and full-year fiscal results - posting $50.2bn (£31bn) in revenues for the 12 months ending December 31, 2012.

The company posted a full-year profit of $10.74bn (£6.8bn), up 10% year on year.

Q4 revenues stood at $14.4bn (£9bn), 36% higher than the same quarter in 201, whilst Q4 produced profits of $2.89bn (£1.8bn), up 6.7% year-on-year

Q4 advertising growth slowed, improving only 19%, compared with 25% a year ago. However, Google's own sites generated revenues of $8.64bn, or 67% of total Google revenues, in the period, an 18% increase over 2011.

Google's partner sites generated revenues of $3.44bn, or 27% of total revenues, in the quarter. The search giant posted a quarterly profit of $2.89bn, up from $2.71bn a year earlier.

Paid clicks increased 24% year on year and were up 9% from the last quarter. But this growth was tempered by a 6% fall in cost-per-click.
