YouTube Is Now The 2nd Largest Search Engine

It's official, video is the new content.

YouTube Now 25 Percent Of All Google Searches

Video search on YouTube accounts for a quarter of all Google search queries in the U.S., according to the latest search engine numbers from comScore.

If it were a standalone site, YouTube would be the second largest search engine after Google. More searches are done through YouTube than through Yahoo.

Just recently YouTube launches a high definition version.

Things to ponder.

How long before video mail replaces emailing?

Your PC and mobile have an "email address", how long before your digital camera and video camera have one too?

How long before your video camera has its own IP address, or is Internet enabled (while power is on)

When will we see the ability to click on a hyperlink within a video? think interactive product placement within a video..the holy grail of Internet advertising

All of these upcoming features will increase Internet traffic exponentially.

How long before every webpage is all covered with video and flipping pages like animated clips. Wonder what the future holds for internet advertising on videos too.

Very True.
Just had a conversation with one of my sons, he corrected me on an event in the 70-s saying he saw it on Youtube. Youtube search = seeing is believing
