Google is seeking new revenue streams, including searches on mobile phones. Its Android software has surged in popularity among consumers, overtaking Research In Motion Ltd.’s BlackBerry to become the top smartphone operating system in the U.S. in the second quarter, according to research firm Gartner Inc.

Display revenue is on pace to top $2.5 billion annually, and mobile-ad sales should exceed $1 billion, Jonathan Rosenberg, senior vice president for product management, said on the conference call. CFO Pichette said there is some overlap in mobile and display advertising, though he called it “small.”

On Google’s YouTube video site, the number of videos being watched that can be monetized -- or targeted with ads -- exceed 2 billion on a weekly basis, up more than 50 percent from a year earlier, he said.
