Trending: Goodbye, iPhone: How Microsoft convinced me to switch to Android and the Samsung Galaxy Note10

googlesignGoogle’s holiday season wasn’t as happy as Wall Street analysts expected.

The company reported that it brought in $18.1 billion in revenue, up from $16.68 billion during the same period a year ago. That missed the consensus of $18.46 billion among analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters.

The company also reported net income of $4.74 billion, up from $4.57 billion in the same period a year ago. That translates into earnings of $6.88 a share, missing analyst expectations of $7.11 per share.

Unsurprisingly, advertising revenue made up 89 percent of the company’s total revenue for the quarter. That’s down slightly from the same period a year ago, when ad revenue made up 90 percent of Google’s top line. Average cost-per-click, which measures the amount of money Google makes every time someone clicks on an advertisement from the social network, was down 3 percent year-over-year, and 3 percent sequentially.

That’s a mixed blessing for Google. It shows that the decrease in cost-per-click has slowed over the recent quarters, but it’s still continuing on a downward trend.

Investors aren’t thrilled by the news. Google’s stock is down almost 4 percent in after hours trading.

Google’s detailed financial results are embedded below:
