Last week, Google announced that YouTube videos will be available for search on Google Video Search.
Starting today, YouTube video results will appear in the Google Video search index: when users click on YouTube thumbnails, they will be taken to YouTube.com to experience the videos. Over time, Google Video will become even more comprehensive as it evolves into a service where users can search for the world’s online video content, irrespective of where it may be hosted.
From this move, it is expected that Google Video Search will be taking the role as a search engine for video files, rather than another online video portal that is competing with its own acquired property YouTube. On top of that, Google is planning to include video files from other web sources on its Video Search.
Earlier the same week Google announced via its Inside Adsense Blog that it will also provide a few selected group of webmasters to test Adsense video content on their websites.
Afterall in reality, it’s about time Google starts experimenting possible models in monetizing the combination of its video search technologies and Youtube.
YouTube is currently the number one online video portal and was acquired by Google in 2006 for 1.65 billion dollar.
