As the world’s second largest search engine, YouTube ranks only behind Google with over 1.9 billion monthly users. It makes the platform an excellent place to increase brand awareness. However, in today’s video saturated market, it can seem difficult to gain viewership and visibility within YouTube.
On Monday Google announced the addition of new filters, including Shopping and YouTube, to their Google Trends tool. With this update, users are able to go beyond web search when looking into trending topics and more.
A topic that’s front and center in today’s digital world is video. (We’ve even discussed it in a recent blog post.) Folks are turning to YouTube more and more these days.
