top 20 video sites online

by

comScore Media Metrix reported that YouTube
broke into the top 50 Websites. That made me wonder, what are the top video
sites on the Web. I asked comScore, and they sent me back this
list (which is not a definitive ranking, but it gives you a good idea
of where the major players stand. Update:Since I first posted
this list, I went back to comScore for stats on more sites and have
added in AtomFilms, Ebaum’s World, Grouper, Revver, and VSocial):

Web Property Visitors, July 2006 (in millions)

1. Yahoo Video 21.1
2. MySpace Videos 20.1
3. YouTube 16.1
4. MSN Video 14.6
5. AOL Video 10.5
6.
Heavy

8.3
7. Google Video 6.8
8. Ebaum’s World 5.4
9.
iFilm

3.3
10. Metacafe 2.0

11. Atom Films 1.5
12. Grouper 0.9
13.
Veoh

0.7
14.
Revver 0.2
15.
Vsocial
0.09

My takeaways from this list are that
Yahoo is No. 1, but MySpace is close, and YouTube is coming on like a
rocket (it grew from 2.7 million visitors last January to 16.1 million
in July).

Also, note how low Google Video is on this list (No. 7, below
Heavy.com). Perhaps putting a link to videos on the main search
page will help Google move up the ranks.

Finally, don’t count out smaller upstarts like Metacafe (another Web 2.0 Around the World site) and

Veoh
squeeze their way into view, even if just barely. (Revver would have
been No. 11 at nearly 200,000 monthly visitors). The Year of Internet Video is coming along quite nicely.
