Nielsen Online has released online VideoCensus data for the month of March. YouTube not surprisingly, is still on top in both total streams and unique viewers.

The ranking of brands by total number of video streams goes like this:

1. YouTube (5,479,609)
2. Hulu (348,520)
3. Yahoo! (231,795)
4. Fox Interactive Media (207,528)
5. Nickelodeon Kids and Family Network (196,160)
6. ABC.com (176,931)
7. MSN/Windows Live (168,907)
8. Turner Sports and Entertainment Digital Network (137,621)
9. MTV Networks Music (123,888)
10. CNN Digital Network (103,453)

The rundown for unique viewers is a little different:

1. YouTube (89,407)
2. Yahoo! (24,761)
3. Fox Interactive Media (14,719)
4. MSN/Windows Live (12,076)
5. CNN Digital Network (9,021)
6. Hulu (8,865)
7. ABC.com (6,881)
8. Nickelodeon Kids and Family (6,391)
9. MTV Networks Music (6,337)
10. Turner Sports and Entertainment (5,822)

Here is some other interesting data, like the fact that time per viewer in March reached over 3 hours, up 12.6% from February:

Since last summer, we have watched Hulu climb up the VideoCensus charts, but it clearly has a long way to go before it reaches YouTube status. YouTube on the other hand is rumored to be changing into a more hulu-like site (while retaining the classic YouTube properties that made it popular to begin with). It should be interesting to see where the numbers fall in another year’s time.

    I have seen real estate brokers say their property is too good to have the quality strained on a youtube compression upload. Or that they have video posted but nothing dramatic for views. You need to “shake the money maker”…not just post it. Embed it in your stand alone blogs. In your emails..add a link. Search engines pick up on the video and show the little screen in the page results. Video is huged if done right..to promote the product or service, the person peddling it and the area the guy or gla lives in.
