US vs International Revenues

— International Revenues: Segmentwise, international revenue grew 17.92% year on year to $509.66 million from $432.226 million, and around 21% sequentially from $420.5 million last quarter. International revenues account for 28.4%, up sequentially from 26% and 24.8% in the previous two quarters.

Marketing Services Revenues; Display vs Search

Yahoo’s Marketing services revenues declined 12 percent year on year to $1.562 billion, and were flat quarter on quarter. At $223.7 million, fees revenues declined 11% year on year, and were up 2% sequentially. Marketing revenues from Owned and Operated sites were at $851 million, down from $858.16 million last quarter, and 15% lower than $1.002 billion reported for the quarter ending September 2008. The decrease was driven by, not surprisingly, a 19 percent decline in search advertising revenue and 8 percent decline in display advertising revenue.
