business Updated: Jul 20, 2012 02:37 IST

Google Inc's core internet business boosted revenue 21% in the second quarter, while its recently acquired Motorola Mobility business raised Google's overall revenue to $12.21 billion.

Google reported second-quarter net income of $2.79 billion, or $8.42 per share, on a consolidated basis.

Shares of Google were up 3% at $609 in after-hours trading on Thursday.

The cost per click for Google's online search ads continued to decline in the second quarter, falling 16% year-on-year, while the overall number of clicks on its ads increased 42%.

Google, the world's No. 1 Web search engine, closed its $12.5 billion acquisition of Motorola in mid-May, giving Google a foothold in the fiercely competitive smartphone hardware business, dominated by companies such as Apple Inc and Samsung.

Google said the revenue at its existing internet business totaled $10.96 billion in the second quarter, compared with $9 billion in the year-ago period. Revenue at Motorola in the second quarter was $1.25 billion.
