Google profits up – boost to web sector

In this gloomy climate it’s great to see some good news – and the Irish Times reports here that Google has seen a sharp rise in its profits for the first quarter of this year – more evidence they say that the web advertising and technology sectors are bouncing back from the recession. It seems that revenue rose 28% which is the the biggest rate of growth since the third quarter of 2008.

Good news indeed for Google’s many Irish employees, and good news also for the online industry if this trend continues – it certainly seems that ‘online’ is where we all need to be as there aint much moving and shaking in the traditional marketing arena!
