Net earnings for the quarter ended December 31 were $1.03 billion, or $3.29 a share, including one-time items such as stock-based compensation, compared with $372 million, or $1.22 a share, in the same quarter a year earlier. Excluding those items, earnings were $997 million, or $3.18 a share.

Total revenue for the third quarter rose 67 percent to $3.2 billion, compared with $1.92 billion a year ago. Excluding traffic acquisition costs, or commission paid to content partners, revenue was $2.23 billion, slightly higher than estimates. Analysts polled by Thomson Financial were expecting Google to post earnings per share of $2.92 excluding items, and revenue of $2.19 billion, excluding traffic acquisition costs.
