Inside YouTube Search

December 22, 2010

Every morning, we comb through YouTube's search data to investigate top spiking search terms and the videos they lead to:
  • dog waiting for santa - There's a spike in searches for videos of dogs waiting for Santa Claus today. Though there are a few, this appears to be the very cute one people are looking for.

  • books for christmas - We featured this video in our 4 @ 4 yesterday morning, and it seems that today the clip of the disgruntled little boy opening a package of books last Christmas has made our top spiking searches.

  • vladimir radmanovic - Searches are on the rise for this Golden State Warriors forward who hit a buzzer-beater three-point shot last night to send the game into overtime against Sacramento. There was also a lot of interest in the Lakers-Bucks game in which Kobe Bryant got ejected.

  • jessica harlow - YouTuber Jessica Harlow is a rising search today. The popular make-up tutorial videomaker recently posted instructions on a Black Swan look.
