YouTube’s newest and biggest milestone was announced today on their official blog; YouTube now has over 1 billion unique viewers per month. This is HUGE for any type of website. This accounts for 1 out of every 2 people on the web! Remember this is 1 billion unique viewers. That does not count for how many times each of those 1 billion people revisit the video streaming site.
YouTube gives the following examples of what else would equal this about of viewers:
- Our monthly viewership is the equivalent of roughly ten Super Bowl audiences.
- If YouTube were a country, we’d be the third largest in the world after China and India.
- PSY and Madonna would have to repeat their Madison Square Garden performance in front of a packed house 200,000 more times. That’s a lot of Gangnam Style!
