Google (GOOG), Yahoo (YHOO) and Microsoft (MSFT) all reported earnings this week. Overall, I think the only company that truly impress analysts and wall street was Microsoft. Let me quickly share the financial statements with you and forum discussion.

Google's announcement highlights as I see it:

  • Revenue up 24% to $6.82 billion.
  • Paid clicks decreased approximately 3% from the previous quarter.
  • Cost per click increased approximately 2% from previous quarter.
  • Net income was up a bit, cash is up and head counts are up.

Yahoo's PDF release as I see it:

  • Revenue up slightly
  • Income up a lot
  • It is hard to get PPC and CPC data from this report

  • Revenue at $16.04 billion, up 22%
  • Operating and net income both up about 50%, $5.93 billion and $4.52 billion, respectively.
  • Online advertising revenue increased $79 million or 19% to $494 million
  • Specific PPC and CPC data is hard to find

So none of these companies has “lost” the game, and each has potential to become bigger than it is today.
