I’m noticing a bit of a trend. Looks like music searches dominated the top 20 in December of 2008 with Family Guy and the supposedly funny, high-pitched tween, Fred also making the list.

What does this mean for marketers? You need to start pushing for more product placement inside music videos , become a pop star, or create a dance craze if you want to break into the top 20 on YouTube. Thankfully there are other options.

Hypnotic Weightlifting PokemonHitwise notes that there are other, more promising terms for advertisers further down the list like, “hypnosis”, “pokemon”, and “bodybuilding”. I’m not sure what they mean by promising, but I have a feeling my hypnotic, weight lifting pokemon music video has a shot at going viral !

    A dog is not considered a good dog because he is a good barker. A man is not considered a good man because he is a good talker.
