Inside YouTube Search

December 23, 2010

Every morning, we comb through YouTube's search data to investigate top spiking search terms and the videos they lead to:
  • rex ryan feet - Searches have been spiking today for NY Jets coach Rex Ryan who had to answer questions yesterday at a press conference about foot fetish gossip that's made the rounds on the web this week.

  • cedar rapids trailer - The trailer for the new Ed Helms-John C. Reilly comedy just hit the web yesterday, and already searches are up for it.

  • future first person shooter - One of this morning's 4 @ 4 videos, a real-life take on first-person-shooter video games, is already a rising search this morning.

  • omaha bar - A dispute between a band and a bar owner in Omaha is drawing attention for that owner's intoxicated behavior. (Contains lots of adult language!)
