Big G reports next week, and there are a few things for investors to keep an eye on.

Google (GOOGL -5.45%) steps up with fresh quarterly reports on April 18. 

There's plenty riding on the results. Shares of the dot-com bellwether hit an all-time high last month, and now Google will have to prove that the gains are justified. 

There are a lot of factors that investors will need to keep in mind as they dig into the numbers, and you can be sure that investors in Yandex (YNDX -6.79%) and Baidu (BIDU -7.37%) will also be tuning in. Both companies report just two trading days after Google steps up with its financials, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see those region-specific search engines that dominate their home markets move on positive or negative developments.

In this video, Rick picks out the three things that investors will need to keep an eye on as they take in Big G's numbers.
