Google doesnt make as much money from mobile search http://www.forbes.com/sites/ericjackson/2012/01/23/googles-big-problem-they-dont-want-you-toknow-about/2/ - From last quarter: Were also seeing a huge positive revenue impact from Mobile, which has grown 2.5x in the last 12 months to a run rate of over $2.5 billion. 2012: Last week, he crowed triumphantly that Google+ had hit 90 million users with 60% engaging daily. Again, the problem is that Larry didnt define his terms. If Im forced to sign up for + as part of registering for Gmail, YouTube or search, should that count as a registration? And if I then do a search or check my Gmail, should I be counted as engaging with +? Its laughable. Traffic to google alternatives???

It's likely even more than that now. For scale, Yahoo!'s Flickr service has gotten about eight billion photos during its whole run.
