Google Dominates the Viral Video Chart

What People Watched the Week of Dec. 7, 2009

By Published on .

NEW YORK ( -- If it seems like Google has been especially busy lately launching new features, it's because it has. But these days, the search giant appears to be more aggressive than it has previously been in marketing its new launches.

This week the company occupies three of the top 10 spots on the viral video chart with videos promoting Google Goggles, Google Chrome and Google's real-time search offerings. The company's videos tend to blur the line between product demo and quirky, homespun entertainment. As Visible Measures, which compiles the weekly viral chart data, notes, "while there is ton of consumer interest in Google's new products, it certainly doesn't hurt that they control the web's No. 1 video destination."

Also new on this week's chart is a piece intended to promote the ongoing COP 15 climate change summit from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark.
