Alphabet's Q2 earnings report is in, showing that the company's revenue is up 21 percent from Q2 in 2016, and this is in light of the fine that it had to pay to the European Commission which totaled a sum of $2.7 Billion. That 21 percent increase amounts to a total Q2 2017 revenue of $26 Billion displaying that Alphabet is still making good money on Google's advertising business, which was reported at a total of $22.672 Billion this year, compared to the $19.413 Billion in ad revenues from last year. Alphabet's total revenue from the second quarter in 2016 was $21.5 Billion.
