A massive fine from the European Union hasn't knocked Alphabet off course.
The owner of Google reported stronger than expected sales in the three months to the end of June.
Alphabet earned $32.7bn in revenue in the three months to the end of June, up by more than a quarter on the same period last year.
"It has this dominance of search. 80% of worldwide internet traffic on mobile devices is run off its Android mobile platform, so it can shrug off things even like a $5.1bn fine from the EU, " said Stephanie Hare, technology researcher.
Early this month the European Union slapped a $5bn fine on Google for abusing the dominance of its Android operating system.
"Is Google going to take this EU decision as a signal that they can't mess around anymore and they're going to have to build their technology in a way that it can be plug and play and allow greater customer choice?" Ms Hare said.
