Search giant Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL) continues to flirt with all-time highs of over $900, sparking talk of when Big G may hit $1,000 per share. The storyline is similar to the conversation surrounding Apple last year, but investor attention appears to have shifted to Google as a service-centric play. The core ad business remains rock solid, and headwinds from Motorola's continued operating losses and structural challenges in China aren't major threats.

Even after acknowledging Baidu's (NASDAQ:BIDU) effective victory in China, Google still has opportunities in other geographic regions in its quest to reach the next billion Internet users.

In the following video, Fool contributor Evan Niu, CFA, and Eric Bleeker, CFA, discuss Google's strong year so far, and where Big G goes from here.
