Inside YouTube Search

December 10, 2010

Every morning, we comb through YouTube's search data to investigate top spiking search terms and the videos they lead to:
  • singing angel; 8 year old singing amazing grace - These top spiking searches are likely a reference to now 8-year-old Rhema Marvanne whose singing talents went viral earlier this year.

  • lsu pizza girl - An altercation in a fast food counter stemming from an apparently impatient woman is being heavily shared and is among this morning's top searches.

  • james moody - Jazz great James Moody has passed away at 85 and searches are spiking for the Newark musician.

  • i am number four trailer - The latest trailer for this teen sci-fi action film hit the web this week and there's been a spike in searches for it.

  • real steel - Another trailer is also among the morning's top searched. The first preview for the new Hugh Jackman action film, Real Steel hit the web yesterday.
