More Video Arriving Each Day from Egypt

In the last 7 days, "Egypt" is the #3 overall rising search on YouTube in the United States -- and #2 globally -- and those searches will deliver results of over 18,000 videos in the past week and over 5,000 in the past 24 hours.

CitizenTube has partnered with Storyful to organize all of that footage into playlists for each day of the protest since it started on January 25th:


Tuesday, January 25

Wednesday, January 26

Thursday, January 27

Friday, January 28

Saturday, January 29

Sunday, January 30

Monday, January 31

Tuesday, February 1

Wednesday, February 2

Thursday, February 3

Friday, February 4

Next week, we'll be following up with even more interesting data around the events in Egypt, but for now we just wanted to take a quick broad look at how searches for the word "egypt" (in English) on YouTube have increased due to the events. As you can see in the chart below, searches for Egypt-related video this week have been higher than ever before in YouTube history.

The other major spikes are soccer-related including those around a 2009 match with Algeria that was preceded by violence.

What do you think?
