"Google is now part of Alphabet, our parent company created in 2015," said the blog post.

Under the leadership of Sundar Pichai and riding on Search engine and YouTube growth, Google's revenue jumped 26% to $23.3 billion in the second quarter in 2018.

Traffic acquisition costs, a key metric in Google's ad business, went up to 23% of ad revenue in the second quarter.
