    Smile YouTube becomes second largest search engine


    In a recent Revelation YouTube, the six-year-old video sharing website has become the second largest search engine in the world after Google. Google isn't ready to disclose if YouTube is profitable yet, but the company says it will continue to offer free content and monetise the traffic to generate ad revenues.

    Expected Expectation


    Youtube has been successful because of their easy accessibility to the users and an archive of videos with interesting personalities with natural and viral marketing has done the trick. If Google makes Youtube a business site where videos cannot be uploaded free they will pay the price for it so for now they are the first of its kind.

    It was bound to happen, really. I wouldn't be surprised if one day, it will overtake Google even. The interactive aspect of Youtube is incomparable in the search engine category (for now, maybe).

    Youtube signs up with film studios, TV serials and advertising companies as on-demand video takes center stage

    Youtube is basically spicific for videos and you can search anything at google even youtube also. whatever youtube can't match with google ever.. you can not search holy-food.org at you tube but holy-food.org is searchable at google.

    This make sense to me. I know that more often than not if I want to learn about something I tend to start with a Youtube search these days.

    Good new for google having the #1 & #2 search engines. No so good news for Bing / Yahoo. Does Youtube even have competition?
