The 2nd quarter 2014 financial reporting season has begun and an early entrant this time around is everyone’s favorite digital behemoth Google. Although their financials we pretty much just revenue and income, there were also a few interesting tidbits about Google advertising performance mixed in.
Aside from the financials, I also had a pile of Google stats that have been building up. Now seemed as good a time as ever to get caught up a bit, so there are a bunch of new and updated stats now in my Google posts.
Below is a sampling of some of the new and updated stats. Check out the full posts also listed below for even more. Be sure to keep an eye on DMR over the next few weeks as we are sure to be getting a bunch of new stats as other major public digital companies like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Apple and more report their quarterlies.

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these stats come from Google’s own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100% accurate.
