Inside YouTube Search

February 18, 2011

Every morning, we comb through YouTube's search data to investigate top spiking search terms and the videos they lead to:
  • premios lo nuestro 2011 - The morning's top rising search is for the Latin music Lo Nuestro Awards, which Univision has posted on YouTube.

  • maria aragon - The Canadian 10-year-old has become an overnight sensation and is again a top spiking search term after her Lady Gaga cover caught the singer's attention.

  • radiohead lotus flower - This new Radiohead video is one of this morning's rising searches.

  • hold it against me video - The new Britney Spears music video, featured in today's 4@4 AM.

Lots of music today. Must be the weekend.
