After all, isn’t video on the web the real killer?
The ‘video killed the radio star’ of the new millennium?
And, if so, how many other people have tried to get on the bandwagon?
And, do they get any traffic?
Well, here’s what I found so far – add in with comments if you know of more…
I was going to look at web traffic, but reading more detail on the realities of Alexa, I realise that it’s only useful as a comparative measure, and even then it could be heavily biased!
Anyway, proved my fragile point that there’s loads of them and even glancing at the data from Alexa, you see that none get a fraction of the hits that YouTube is getting. But then, very few of them have probably had any PR at all – and YouTube is mentioned almost daily now.
Which is an interesting truth in itself – being first and being noticed by the press is the real tipping point for all these sites!
