Alphabet Reports Revenues of $61.9 Billion in Q2 2021

Posted on July 27, 2021 by Paul Thurrott in Google with 9 Comments

Google had a monster quarter of its own with its parent company reporting a net income of $18.5 billion on revenues of $61.9 billion for the prior quarter. Both are massive gains—62 percent and 37.6 percent, respectively—over the same quarter one year ago.

“Our strong second quarter revenues of $61.9 billion reflect elevated consumer online activity and broad-based strength in advertiser spend,” Google and Alphabet CFO Ruth Porat said. “Again, we benefited from excellent execution across the board by our teams.”

Google Services delivered $57 billion in revenues, up from $35 billion in the year-ago quarter. Of that, Google Search contributed $36 billion in revenues (up from $21 billion a year ago), while YouTube added $7 billion in revenues. Google Cloud hit $4.6 billion in revenues, and Alphabet’s “other bets” delivered $192 million in revenues.

What everyone wants to know, of course, is how much advertising contributed to Google’s bottom line. Advertising delivered $50 billion in revenues, so it contributed 81 percent of Alphabet’s total revenues.

    So they're still a one-trick pony whose trick is quickly running into both monopoly and privacy legal issues across the world.

    The unanswered part of "What everyone wants to know" is how much advertising contributed to Google's PROFITS not its gross revenues.
