Google : Amazing Numbers

While recently writing about Google and Microsoft, I wrote that Google is no pushover and cited its impressive results as an indication of how stronger Google is getting to be. John Battellebrings home the point that Google is pulling in more and more searches on its own site, which are the most profitable kind of searches there are. Some figures are quite insightful:
- Average revenue per search : 12 cents. It was around a dime in late 04.
- Avg. revenue per searcher: $7
- Avg. revenue per sponsored click: 62 cents.
- Estimated profits for Google in 06: Roughly $4 billion (Bear Stearns) (which is about the same as their forecasted annual revenues this year, FWIW)
- Revenue growth of Google year to year: 96%
- Revenue growth of Yahoo: 42%
- Estimated revenue growth for next year for Google (Bear): 61%
- For the average of eBay, Yahoo, and Amazon: 29%
- Amount spent on capex, 05 (estimate): $800 million

No doubt Google is on a roll, but its time that it outlines its vision for the future in specific terms - say for the next three years.
