Google Adds YouTube to Navigation

YouTube is now in the drop down under "more" in Google's main navigation.

Re: Google Adds YouTube to Navigation

I usually use their video search which includes YouTube results. Many times I will sort and look for only videos over 20 minutes - documentaries etc. This will pretty much sort out the YouTube results.

Re: Google Adds YouTube to Navigation

Good point Dan01, in some cases you will also find videos in the main search results as part of "Universal" search.

Have you noticed this?

If not try a search for "Steve Jobs".

Re: Google Adds YouTube to Navigation

I had not found that yet in the regular search "yet".

You know what I wish?? I wish they would put a "more" link at the end of their "more" drop-down. They have tons of applications that aren't listed their. ooops, it seems like it is there now.

Re: Google Adds YouTube to Navigation

I have seen the Jobs one... and if you do a search for say Britney Spears the youtube link is at 12.
Many celebs have youtube stuff in the SERPs

I have a source for my information that reports only to me but haven't seen any news stories or other talk on this issue.

OK, I knew they didn't have the "more" under the "more" links drop down, but it was on the personalize Google homepages. Here is the link:

Re: Google Adds YouTube to Navigation

Yeah, that was written more because I thought it was funny and it's Friday... I get money based off my sales and results.
I was really poking fun at the sales people that work under me and I constantly catch looking up screen saver... um... "art" of search results like "Jessica Alba" .. There was a great little article in a recent WIRED about Google being TOO convenient to use, to the point that you spend a part of the day just dealing with all your cool Google tools. It reminds me of Email. How convenient of a tool... until you spend a good 30-45 minutes of your day dealing with spam and irrelevant garbage . NOT to say that YouTube in ANY way is irrelevant garbage!

Re: Google Adds YouTube to Navigation

Don't get me started on spam e-mail.

A few years ago my wife and I used to sell on eBay (before we learned about publishing) and I planned all of my auctions to end on the weekend. I thought everyone was on the Internet on the weekends. LOL After a few months I learned: Everyone is on the Internet at work. That changed everything. I changed all of the auctions to end during the week.

yeah... everyone is sitting at their PC with another window minimized and a timer that pops up to warn them that their Ebay Auctions are ending!
Haha... Aussie, I SO want a big pin that says "EMPLOYEE" in generic type like Repo Man! LOL
