The timeline shows Google's quarterly revenues since 2008. In the fourth quarter of 2016, Google's revenue amounted to 25.8 billion U.S. dollars, up from 22.25 billion U.S. dollars in the preceding quarter. Google's main revenue source is advertising through Google sites and its network.

The majority of Google’s revenue comes from advertising through Google owned and operated properties such as Google Search, Google Maps and more.

In 2014, almost 70 percent of its revenue was generated on Google’s Sites, while around 20 percent came from advertising on Google’s network member’s websites and the remaining 10 percent came from licensing and other revenues. The revenues generated from Google’s network member’ websites include revenue from ads served through advertising programs such as AdSense for AdSearch for example. Other revenue include digital content products and apps sold through Google’s Play digital content distribution platform, as well as hardware include Chromecast devices and smartphones.
