Ad revenues boost Google's profit to $3.59bn

  • Google has posted a 4% rise in quarterly profits to $3.59 billion for the first three months of 2015 compared to the same period in 2014.

    The increase is being attributed to good advertising sales, which rose by 11% to $15.5 billion in the first quarter.

    The technology giant’s revenues were up 12% to $17.3 billion from the same period in 2014, but a strong dollar had an adverse impact.
