Google’s first day of trading has come and gone with the search engine seeing an 18% rise in the price of their shares, which started out at $85. At the closing bell today, Google stock was priced at $100.335 a share.

Google’s stock sold well when it first became available, but the volume decreased as the day went on. As pointed out by Andy Beal, the success of Google’s first day should be attributed to the fact they lowered their asking price yesterday.

Final numbers for Google’s big day:

Volume – 22,290,732
Last Trade – 100.335
Change – 15.335 (18.04%)
