Shares of GOOGL the past quarter have not been up to the torrid pace of the Technology sector.
One of GOOGL's key metrics is its paid clicks, which show whether traffic volumes are growing.
Also, consider watching GOOGL's traffic acquisition costs, which are mainly what it pays companies to be the default search engine or for other ways of generating traffic to its website.
We'll see whether those costs are continuing to balloon, or whether GOOGL has scaled back there.
Finally, take a look outside of GOOGL's main search engine business for how its other endeavors like its cloud computing, hardware businesses and new video streaming service Stadia are faring.

) or a larger technology firm that wants to further increase its presence in software, contends that the deal price represents a meaningful discount to its peers.
