After Google revealed the data, the investors reacted crazily, where Google’s shares jumped around six percent in after-hour trading, whereas it was only 1 percent up during the closing bell. The share might be up around 3% to 4% in next day of trading.
According to the experts and well-known analysts, Google’s CPC advertisement sector has jumped around 3.5% since last quarter but the report released by the company suggests that the CPC revenue plunged 8% and compared to last year’s third quarter, it’s 4% down. It seems the company is losing ground in advertisements sector and may be that is why they tried to slowly replace their traditional banner and text ads with Google+ user’s shared endorsements in it. However, the paid clicks earnings are up 26% from last year and 8% up from Q2.
Don’t forget about its hardware business, the company is bringing in some profits via its positively reviewed and acclaimed Motorola Moto X smartphones as well as $35 Chromecast dongle, which topped the Amazon’s sales charts instantly after the release. In fact, Motorola devision mmanaged to bring in only $1.18 billion (8%) revenue with $248 million operating loss.
