I just saw a post listed in Techmeme today from THR.com that discussed that "NBC’s Web sites sees surge in traffic". The Tina Fey/Amy Poehler SNL video (their spoof of Sarah Palin and Hilary Clinton) became the most watched viral video on their site while the instability of wall street brought viewers to CNBC. I thought the Tina Fey/Amy Poehler video was so funny, that I transcribed it to a post at the Silicon Valley Moms Blog – and added some great links to support some of the funny lines. Click here to read the transcript and see the video. The video I loaded to my post was from Hulu, NBC’s free video streaming site. VentureBeat pointed out that although NBC has the Hulu website with free videos, it has already sold 1million shows on iTunes since it started back with this service over 10 days ago.
Viral videos are very popular with moms, the "Mom Song" video was not only the buzz of discussions but was also emailed to me numerous times… My blog, Techmamas,has a category for web 2.0 humor where I list some of my favorite viral videos (like Facebook for Real) that have inspiried me to pass the links through my online social networks like Facebook and even email my friends.

Interesting that viral videos are now also a proven winner for website hits.
