Google recently reported its 2011 total revenue that stood to $37.9 billion.

The ads are the primarily source of income for Google which is constantly performing year-on-year. However, the year 2011 has marked a slight slip down – just 1% – in ad revenue compare to 2010.

The Finance and Insurance industry contributed the most towards Google ad revenue with $4 billion. The search term which bagged the highest cost-per-click (CPC) was “self employed health insurance” which was charged at $43 for every click to the advertisers.
