Google submitted the lowest income in its history

A drop in revenue from Internet search engine Google would be saying, which presents its results today for the first quarter of 2009.

The amount of 4.97 dollars and a turnover of around 4,100 million dollars, would be about 3 percent lower than in the last three months of 2008 and a 19 percent lower than in the first quarter of last year, when the search showed gross earnings of 5100 million dollars.

In the last three months of 2008, Google, based in Mountain View, California, saw its profit fall for the first time since the company published results.

The search was between October and December 2008 a net profit of 382.4 million dollars, almost 70 percent less than the same period last year.

The consensus among experts is that Wall Street does not "punish" the search today if their figures are worse than the last quarter, as it blames the economic crisis affecting the whole Internet sector and a decline in spending on advertising online.

In fact, analysts believe that Google is better equipped than its competitors to avoid a recession because its system for selling ads on the network makes them more efficient and many will focus on whether they have to reduce their advertising budget.

The focus this Thursday will focus on the evolution of Google's efforts to secure advertising revenues not related to the searches in the network, principally through its subsidiaries and DoubleClik YouTube.

Although the number of users of the site continues to grow, Google so far has failed to capitalize acquired YouTube in 2006 for 1,650 million dollars, according to some estimates, will cost the finder $ 470 million this year alone.
