Chinese search engine Sogou has announced its unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2017, the first time since its US IPO last November, reporting strong end-of-year results.

For the full year of 2017, total revenues were $908.4 million, a 38% increase from 2016. Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2017 totaled $277.8 million, a 62% increase year-over-year.

The biggest chunk of the full year revenues still comes from search and search-related services, which totaled $801.6 million, a 34% increase from the previous year. The increase was primarily due to growth from Sogou’s auction-based pay-for-click services, which accounted for 83% of search revenues, the company said in the press release.
