The majority of the revenues comes from Alphabet’s Google division. It brought it $27.47 billion for the third quarter of 2017 and an operating income of $8.7 billion.

The company revealed that it generated a total of $24.065 billion in revenues in ads from its websites and from its Network Members websites. Moreover, it is much higher than the $19.821 billion that division generated a year ago.
