Revenue growth in EMEA was primarily driven by a strong performance in France and Germany, where gains were made in the retail, technology, and finance verticals. We also saw solid gains in relatively smaller markets, such as Canada, Ireland, Spain, and the Nordics. Asia and Latin America continue to show impressive growth rates as well, with Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, and China being notable performers in the quarter.Google co-founder Larry Page also noted that the company made “behind the scenes infrastructure improvements” to improve search quality, including an increase in the size of Google’s index. “We also had substantial improvements in latency and freshness, particularly in Europe, Middle East, and Asia-Pacific,” Page said. With international business growing to nearly half Google’s revenue, Google seems focused on ensuring that its infrastructure delivers the same snappy results in overseas markets. And the numbers for annnual infrastructrue investment will continue to be large ones. “We expect to continue to make these significant investments in CapEx in future quarters,” said Reyes.
