"it depends"

Some bits are self explanatory (sales, marketing, ...). Chances are most of the "brains" of Google (coders and the like) fall under R&D since that is often taxed more favourably. A lot of staff, particularly the people who literally keep the lights on (anyone who works on data centre hardware) will fall under cost of revenue.
