    It’s amazing that there is only 1 real comment here, and the rest is all spam!

    No wonder American Express craps on SEOs, with so much abuse…

    I agree, a youtube campaign is worth a thought reading these numbers, but it shouldn’t stop there, if you read between the lines, you see that the other mentioned parties pull in a lot of viewers, too.

    Youtube.com simply dominates the market, and it is pretty much expected. It is very difficult to compete with Youtube.com now since it has become the ‘cool place’ to publish your videos, just like Facebook has beome the cool social media network.

    Youtube has lasting power, an infinite budget behind the project, and a massive amount of pull. I cannot see Youtube going away any time soon, nor can I see marketers losing any iterest in leveraging this site as a credible way to pull massive traffic to clients.

    Your facts are wrong. YouTube didn’t receive all those views, the 9.8 billion was total online video views, and Google sites, which include YouTube, trafficked roughly 34 percent.
