Question How does Google make money?

Basically started as a search engine right? They get paid for the advts..

But they offer users a lot like.. gmail, google+, maps (scanned down the whole world.. navigation works amazingly even in remotest parts of India), youtube, news, docs, calendar, chrome, earth, android..

I meen, they offer users a lot.. but it seem that they have less options to make money out of it right? like android market, advts? Really how do they make enough money? I cant understand

Default Re: How does Google make money?

I am not sure you realize just how much money they make on advertisements. Say you type "Viagra". And then you click on one of the sponsored links. You then decide, I don't need Viagra. But you had clicked the sponsored link. So google made like 2 cents right? No, try $20 to $40 just for that one click. Between that, and Adsense ads. There is a lot of money to be made.
