On Jan. 20, the Saturday prior to integration with the Google video index, YouTube received 0.54 percent of all Internet visits in the United States and 37.98 percent of visits to the entertainment-multimedia category, Hitwise said.

But on Jan. 27, the Saturday after the integration, YouTube's market share rose to 0.64 percent for all site visits in the United States.

MySpace remains the top upstream provider of traffic to YouTube, bringing 17.54 percent of traffic for Jan. 27.
