Google Puts Video on the Map

Apr 15, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Google has found another way to extend the reach of YouTube with the addition of YouTube videos in Google Maps.
Google announced today on a company blog that it is now including embedded YouTube videos in Google Maps. YouTube videos have been available in the Google Earth service since earlier this year.
“Videos can be found on the ‘Photos & Videos’ tab of the info bubble that appears when you click on a listing,” Google said in its post.
Here is an example of what a search result with YouTube videos looks like:

This new offering by Google is the latest move by the search giant to extend the reach of YouTube videos across the Web.
Already, YouTube has a commanding lead in online video. For the month of March, YouTube accounted for 73% of all Web visits in the U.S. that went to an online video Web site, according to online audience measurement firm Hitwise. That was an increase of 32% in market share of visits compared to a year ago.
