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.
