What are online videos for?

July 21st, 2008 by

I want to present two interesting discussions over online videos:

1. Online video search is dominated by music:

Matt Pace, analyst at Compete points out that Youtube searches can be attributed mostly to music: “28 of the top 40 terms searched on YouTube in June related to either a musician (if you can call some that) or a song title”



New frontiers in online video: Online video as a shopping channel for new vehicles:

Google study reported at Clickz shows that searches for specific vehicle brand names coupled with the term “video” have risen 237 percent over the past year (In March 2008, 240,000 such searches occurred on major search engines). Moreover, the research revealed that 41% of shoppers in the market for a new vehicle viewed video on YouTube prior to purchase.
