Inside YouTube Search

January 24, 2011

Every morning, we comb through YouTube's search data to investigate top spiking search terms and the videos they lead to:
  • jack lalanne - The legendary fitness guru passed away on Sunday at the age of 96. Here he is appearing on CBS in 2009.

  • steve harvey ex-wife - A group of tell-all videos purporting to feature Mary Harvey, the ex-wife of Steve Harvey, are drawing interest this morning. More info. (Contains some adult content.)

  • land of 1000 dances - The Wilson Pickett classic is for some reason among the morning's spiking searches. (Some readers are pointing to this web comic as the source. Thanks!)
