In 2020 Q2, net income increased thanks to steadily streamlining their business despite of decrease in advertising revenue. In 2020 Q3, revenues, operating income, and net income increased 14%, 22%, and 59%, respectively, thanks to a solid recovery in the advertising revenue.
In Alphabet’s business, Google search-related revenue accounts for the largest percentage of total revenues. In this regard, Google search-related revenue increased 6.5%, showing single-digit growth. On the other hand, YouTube ads revenue increased 32%, showing extremely high growth, although Youtube ads revenue accounts for only 10.9% of total revenues. When reviewing growth of revenues depending on regions, growth of Asia Pacific (APAC) revenue recorded the highest growth of +24%.
