Google Inc's net income rose 27% in the third quarter as net income recorded $1.64 billion or $5.13 per share compared with $1.29 billion in a year earlier. Sales excluding revenue passed on to partner sites reached $4.38 billion which is better than the median estimates of $4.25 billion. This came after demand for online ads and e commerce increased along with economic recovery.

However, capital expenditure declined to $186.3 million in the third quarter compared with $451.5 million a year ago, worth mentioning that Google cut 200 sales and marketing positions this year and closed underperforming business units aiming at reducing costs.
