Google is taking one more step to getting serious about online video. Getting real estate on the homepage of Google is like trying to install a golf course in Manhattan. But once you’ve searched something, you’ll notice a “Video: New” icon that allows you to refine your search. See below for example.
The searches appear to be drawing exclusively from Google Video’s content (not indexing beyond) and is a little twitchy. But I won’t complain because if you search “YouTube” two of my videos have top listing. Which helps me in my personal mission to provoke the AT&T of online video.
