Google's profits lifted by higher advertising revenues
Google's latest quarterly results have beaten market expectations after it posted a 32% rise in profits.
The internet giant made a net profit of $2.17bn (£1.4bn) in the three months to 30 September, up from $1.6bn for the same period a year earlier.
Google thanked higher advertising revenues, but also the success of its newer businesses, such as its Android mobile phone operating system.
Its overall revenues were up 23% to $7.29bn.
