Inside YouTube Search

March 01, 2011

Every morning, we comb through YouTube's search data to investigate top spiking search terms and the videos they lead to:
  • charlie sheen interview - Actor Charlie Sheen, who has given some unique interviews of late, is one of today's rising searches.

  • marshmallow people - This surreal short from yesterday's 4 at 4 AM is still among the morning's top spiking searches.

  • born this way music video - Perhaps unsurprisingly, searches are on the rise for Lady Gaga's new music video. (It's drawn 2 million views in roughly one day.)

  • what are words - Chris Medina may have been cut from American Idol, but there's been a rise in interest in his first single.
