Through its search engine, YouTube video service, and partnerships across the Web, Google sells more internet ads than any other company.


Demand for its services surged in the past year as the pandemic forced people to spend more time online, and their new habits have persisted, Paresh Dave and Nivedita Balu reported for Reuters.



Google advertising revenue rose 41% to $53.1 billion during the third quarter. Alphabet's overall sales jumped to $65.1 billion, above the average estimate of $63.3 billion among analysts tracked by Refinitiv.
