Google ranked seventh in the 2011 index, and Unruly Media credits this year’s jump to Google’s success with its Project Glass: One day… video, the video that Google released in the spring to introduce how consumers might some day use the Google Glass product. (see below)

Google videos were shared almost 200 percent more often this year than in 2011. Nike ranks second on Unruly Media’s list with about 5.5 million video shares. Coca-Cola had the biggest one-year gain with 485 percent more video shares this year than a year ago. Volkswagen, last year’s top video brand, fell to 10th this year.
