YouTube Continues Search Engine Domination – up 31% YOY

Is anyone still wondering if search is important for video?  


November of last year, YouTube surpassed Yahoo for the first time in
total U.S. search queries, making it the 2nd largest search engine in
the U.S. next to only its owner, Google.  Ever since then, YouTube has
continued to dominate the search space when you look at the total
number of search queries.

Now, when you think about the fact that all of the searches on
Youtube are users looking for video content in particular, there is no
doubt that YouTube is THE largest video search/discovery destination.

This past month, October, 2009, there were a total of more than 3.7
Billion search queries on YouTube as measured by comScore.  This
represents and increase of more than 31 percent year over year (vs 2,580,000.000 queries in Oct. 2008) and an increase of 7% over just last month.  Yahoo, although still the 3rd largest search engine, has now fallen more than 1 billion queries/mo behind YouTube.

This is just another reason for lawyers to not only create videos but promote them on video search engines such as YouTube.

  1. Advertisement should be with marketing ethics:
    Selling goods is always right but if there are some conditions are full-filled, 1) The goods should be according to rules specified by the creator of this universe, 2) there must be ethical selling i.e. telling people the right things about the products, you should tell the benefits and dis-benefits of the products, and the marketing or advertising of the products should not contain any immodest pictures and they should not contain any vulgarity in the name of advertising, and they should not be fraudulent and no dishonesty in selling then it is alright to sell a product, or if you don’t follow the guidelines above mentioned then be ready to be toasted in hell fire after you die.
    Websites are always helpful in one way or the other, anyways, microsoft notes a good way to get started to renovate your dreams into the world of reality.
