YouTube’s 2009 view tallies are in, and we’ve got a winner: Susan Boyle’s Britain’s Got Talent clip clocked 120 million views, far surpassing any other video posted on the site. Second on the list of the most-watched videos is the adorably intoxicated David after Dentist, with 37 million views, while the Chris Brown career-saving JK Wedding Entrance Dance clip came in third, with 33 million views.

Also interesting is the list of fastest-rising search terms, which reads a little bit like a pop culture trip down memory lane. January was dominated by Obama’s inauguration, Michael Jackson’s death was the focus throughout much of the summer, and the rest of the year was filled with a mixture of movie premieres and minor scandals ranging from Kanye West to Tiger Woods.

Here’s the complete list of fastest-rising YouTube search terms by month, as searched for by its global audience:

January: inauguration

February: christian bale

March: the climb

April: susan boyle

May: pacquiao vs hatton

June: michael jackson thriller

July: michael jackson

August: usain bolt

September: kanye west

October: paranormal activity

November: bad romance

December: tiger woods

Notable is how the U.S. was already partying with JK in July while the world was still mourning Jacko’s demise. Below is a list of the fastest-rising YouTube search terms by month specifically for the U.S.:

January: obama inauguration

February: on a boat

March: watchmen

April: susan boyle

May: pacquiao

June: michael jackson thriller

July: wedding

August: send it on

September: kanye west

October: paranormal activity

November: adam lambert

December: tiger woods

  1. I’m not talking about functional value, i.e., your content, I’m talking about value that goes beyond the value of your content. This value can be practical, it can be emotional, and it can be both. It’s value that build relationship equity and it’s the secret ingredient to sustaining and building high quality traffic.
