I recently noticed that google in its new front page dumped Froogle for Google Video ( see it from Internet wayback machine) Old Google page. What does it mean. Of course it transforms in to a lot of traffic. See it here from Hitwise
In apparence its cloning youtube. Try the new google video UI and you will realise it quicker
What does this all mean. Some said that follow the leader. Every one did follow the google for its UI and its searching algorithm. Now its interesting to see that Google is benchmarking some others. What all those engineers cant find is being identified by You tube guys.
Nice to see google adapting to the trendy users and yielding to web 2.0 by adapting and user based contents.
