SUMMARY: The guy who runs ancestry.com is the one coming up with numbers, so i'd say he's a credible source, however, google hasn't officially released the numbers yet.


If the Google+ invites keep flowing, the search giant's social-networking site could reach 10 million users by day's end and 20 million by the end of the weekend, according to Tuesday analysis.

In an attempt to get a rough estimate of Google+ users, Ancestry.com founder Paul Allen (not to be confused with the Microsoft co-founder) has been comparing US Census Data with last names of certain Google+ members. Early estimates released over the weekend put Google+ at about 4.5 million users, but that has since exploded, Allen said.

"My surname-based analysis shows that the number of Google+ users worldwide reached 7.3 million yesterday (July 10)—up from 1.7 million users on July 4th," Allen wrote in a Google+ post. "That is a 350% increase in six days. The userbase is growing so quickly that it is challenging for me to keep up, since the number of users of any given surname (even the rare ones I am tracking) seems to be climbing every day."

More impressive, he said, is that it appears approximately 2.2 million people have joined Google+ in the last 32 to 34 hours, for a total of about 9.5 million people on Monday, Allen speculated.

As a result, he expects user numbers to grow to 10 million today and 20 million by the weekend, provided invites remain open. "As one G+ user put it, it is easy to underestimate the power of exponential growth," Allen wrote.

How exactly is Allen getting these numbers? He said he looked at US Census Bureau data about the popularly of last names in the U.S. and the compared it with the number of Google+ users who had the same last names.

"By using a sample of 100-200 surnames, I am able to accurately estimate the total percentage of the U.S. population that has signed up for Google+," he wrote. "Then I use that number and a calculated ratio of U.S. to non-U.S. users to generate my worldwide estimates."

Currently, his ratio is 1 U.S. user for every 2.12 non-U.S. Google+ user, a ratio that has not been updated since July 4. "That is definitely a weakness in my model that I hope to address soon. The ratio will likely change over time," Allen said.

He acknowledged that this is not a perfect method, but said it was sound. "If I had resources to include 500 or 1,000 surnames in my sample, then I believe my model would be more accurate. But my time and budget available for this project are small, so it is what it is," he wrote.

Google, meanwhile, is staying mum. "We don't have any comment on the number of people in the Google+ Field Trial," a Google spokeswoman said yesterday. When it re-opened Google+ invites recently, the company said it wanted to double the number of people in its "field trial," but declined to say exactly how many people that entailed.

Facebook, meanwhile, recently confirmed that it now has 750 million users, but CEO Mark Zuckerberg said the company didn't publicize the milestone because user numbers are not as important as they once were.

By Alexei Oreskovic Alexei Oreskovic – 43 mins ago

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Google Inc's 36 percent revenue surge smashed Wall Street's expectations and eclipsed concerns about mounting expenses, sending the Internet giant's shares up more than 12 percent.

Google's profit also topped forecasts in a quarter that showed the company is powering ahead in areas outside of its dominant Internet search business, including mobile and online video. The next challenge is whether it can duplicate that success in social networking.

Executives told analysts on a conference call the company had signed up more than 10 million people for Google+: the company's biggest foray into the hot social networking arena and the vanguard of its battle with Facebook and Twitter for websurfers' time and attention.

Over 135 million Android smartphones or tablets -- made by the likes of Motorola and Samsung Electronics -- had been activated in total. And its Chrome browser is now employed by more than 160 million users, CEO Larry Page said.

Shares of Google were up 12.3 percent at $594.50 in after-market trading, or just a whisker above levels at which the stock began 2011.

"Google should be viewed as a growth company again this quarter," said Stifel Nicolaus analyst Jordan Rohan. "The combination of mobile search, Android, ad exchange, YouTube, and the core search businesses, they're all doing well. Google is no longer a one trick pony."

"The number to focus on is really the GAAP earnings number. Google spent aggressively, hiring just as many people this quarter as they did last quarter."

Investors had feared Google's ever-increasing spending would eat into margins. Operating expenses leapt 49 percent to $2.97 billion in the second quarter, to about a third of revenue.

Analysts said the big increase in sales more than compensated for the rise in costs, but Google might find it increasingly difficult to shore up margins while it continues to hire, acquire and invest.

"Revenue growth overrides the hiring and the expense issues," BGC Partners analyst Colin Gillis said in response to the share price jump.

"Nice quarter from the guys, but you still have a situation of declining margins," he added.
