Google keeps rolling, Microsoft searching for monetization

Google‘s net went from $733 million in Q3 to $1.03 billion in the fourth quarter, joining Apple in the billion dollar club.

Sales were $3.21 billion, up 67 percent from a year ago and 19 percent sequentially.

It kind of overshadows Microsoft’s good showing in the monthly comScore Web traffic report. Sites owned by Microsoft were the most visited in the world last month after seeing a 5 percent traffic gain.

December’s top Web sites worldwide, ranked by unique visitors were:

Microsoft sites 508,659

Google sites 494,170

Yahoo! sites 476,761

Time Warner Network 260,387

eBay 251,423

Wikipedia sites 164,675

Amazon sites 151,033

Fox Interactive Media 135,730

CNET Networks 114,940

Ask Network 113,881

Apple Computer 111,131

Adobe sites 100,421

Lycos 83,724

Viacom Digital 76,171

New York Times Digital 68,010

In advance of these two items today there was a bunch of chatter about Microsoft’s search efforts, including tough takes by John Battelle and Henry Blodget</a
