Inside YouTube Search

February 16, 2011

Every morning, we comb through YouTube's search data to investigate top spiking search terms and the videos they lead to:
  • lara logan - Searches are up for the CBS correspondent who was attacked last week in Cairo.

  • exercise workouts - There are few dominant spiking search terms today, and some generic searches are near the top, like searches for workout videos.

  • very super famous - This quickly rising sketch music video, which was created by Canadian YouTube Comedian John Lajoie, is drawing some interest this morning.
