Google Incorporates YouTube Into Video Service

  • January 26, 2007
YouTube videos will be added to Google Video's search index, but the two online video services will otherwise remain separate, the company announced Thursday. Under the arrangement, users clicking on YouTube results on Google Video will be taken back to YouTube to view videos. The move ended speculation that Google would replace its homegrown video service with YouTube, which it bought last year for $1.6 billion. YouTube drew 29.5 million unique monthly visitors in December--nearly double Google Video's 15 million, according to comScore Media Metrix. -- Mark Walsh
