Media Relations: What the papers say - Superlatives roll for golden Google

Google has won positive headlines - 'Earnings soar past estimates' (Financial Times, 22 April) - and applause - 'nothing short of phenomenal' (Caris & Co analyst David Garrity, The Times, 22 April).

'The internet goliath' (sharecast.com, 25 April) was being lauded as revenue doubled, profits were up almost six-fold and shares had performed well. 'There's Google, and then there's everyone else' (iii.co.uk, 22 April).

The search engine's results even lifted a weary Wall Street: 'Google helps Wall Street to biggest gain in years' (The Guardian, 22 April). Even the most prominent concern, that Google's monetary strength was based on a single revenue stream, had been addressed by this week: 'Google to test new display ad service' (FT, 25 April).

For those who highlighted an alleged U-turn in Google's ad policy, The Business had a curt reply: 'The most innovative companies are doing better than those that resist change or have gambled on a wrong strategy' (24 April).
