Sturdy 12 months-on-calendar year growth for Google. In general, Alphabet reported revenue of $68 billion, up from $55.3 billion in Q1 2021. Zooming in on Google search, which accounted for 58% of Alphabet’s revenues, here are the key figures for Q1 of 2022 (when compared to Q1 of 2021):

YouTube testing adverts on Shorts. On the Alphabet earnings phone, we discovered that YouTube is tests ads on Shorts – its quick-sort (which means 60 seconds or significantly less) video item. Two types of ads ended up described: application install and video clip motion strategies.

That is when advertisers are dumping dollars into Google and Microsoft advertisements. Nevertheless a slowdown could occur at any position, lookup marketing was sturdy in 2021 and models system to spend far more in PPC this 12 months.
