Google has made public the financial results for its Q1 2011 that ended on the 31st of March and unsurprisingly the Mountain View-based search engine giant did quite well. As Google’s Chief Financial Officer Patrick Pichette explained, Google “had a great quarter with 27% year-over-year revenue growth.”

Pichette went on to say that “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.”
