Google Google has explained on its blog where it gets its money from. Sort of. "Today, in the spirit of greater transparency with AdSense publishers, we're sharing the revenue shares for our two main AdSense products - AdSense for content and AdSense for search."

Not sure I see that. When I think of "fat" margins, like Apple-fat margins, I think of 100 - 200% easily (i.e. on hardware).

Google's Adsense content publishers, the most critical, get 68% revenue share

While search partners, get 50%

So Google's 32% profit from each publisher seems reasonable to me.

You are a Troll. Apple's margin is 21% not 100 or 200%.
