Here are a few interesting Google snippets.

  • Google has raked in $48 billion from Internet ads since 2001
  • Far from stashing all of it, the company has paid $15 billion in commissions to the web sites that run its ads contributing to the success of major sites like AOL, Ask.com and MySpace as well as an array of bloggers.
  • Google Chairman Eric Schmidt aims to generate $100 billion in annual revenue, making it roughly as big as the two largest information-technology companies – Hewlett-Packard Co. and IBM Corp.
  • Google is believed to index at least 40 billion Web pages running hundreds of thousands of computers kept in massive data centers around the world.
  • The guys at the helm  – Eric Schmidt (53) (Goolge CEO), Sergei Brin (35) and Larry page (35) (Founders) have made an informal pact to remain the company’s brain trust through 2024, at least.
