  1. Google’s ad revenue share increases in 1Q -- Microsoft News Tracker Says:

    [...] But each quarter, Google’s revenue growth has outpaced the overall growth of the market. In the year-ago quarter, Google’s $1.26 billion in revenues were worth 45% of the $2.8 billion in total Internet advertising revenues. Last quarter, Google’s share was 53%, and in the first quarter of 2006, Google’s portion came to 58% of the total. There are also some new search stats in the full article, but it’s all a familiar tune: Google is leaving Yahoo and Microsoft in the dust. Here’s a closing factoid: Google will earn approximately $23 per U.S. Internet user in 2006, according to Merrill Lynch analyst Justin Post. $23 here, $23 there – pretty soon you’re talking the license fee for Microsoft Windows on the user’s PC.
