In the UK, revenues reached $969 million; 11% of total quarterly revenue.
Patrick Pichette, CFO of Google, said “We had a great quarter with 27% year-over-year revenue growth. These results demonstrate the value of search and search ads to our users and customers, as well as the extraordinary potential of areas like display and mobile. It's clear that our past investments have been crucial to our success today - which is why we continue to invest for the long term.”
