Google has posted revenues of $12bn for its second quarter of 2012, up 35 per cent from the same period last year, as the search giant shows no sign of slowing down.
This led to profits in the three months ending 30 June of $3.44bn, a slight increase on the $3.32bn the firm took home in Q2 2011.
This leaves the firm with a not inconsiderable $43bn in the bank, although this is down from $49bn last quarter, most likely due to the closure of the firm's $12bn acquisition of Motorola.
Despite fears spending in advertising may have reduced due to ongoing financial difficulties across the world advertising spend grew, with paid click revenues increasing 42 per cent, although cost-per-click incomes dropped 16 per cent.
The UK market accounted for $1.18bn of the firm's earnings while Motorola added $1bn to the firm's bottom line through device sales.
The incorporation of Motorola into Google has vastly increased the firm's employee base too, with 54,600 full-time staff now on the payroll, 20,300 of whom are from the handset maker.
Google chief executive Larry Page was bullish about the results and touted future developments that should help continue this growth.
"Google had a strong quarter with 21 per cent year-on-year revenue growth, and we launched a bunch of exciting new products at I/O - in particular the Nexus 7 tablet, which has received rave reviews," he said in a written statement.
"This quarter is also special because Motorola is now part of the Google family, and we're excited about the potential to build great devices for users."
On an earnings call it was also confirmed that Page has lost his voice and is unable to take part in any public engagements at present.
