YouTube Rolls Out Sponsored Videos

Paid search has come to YouTube. Users can pay to have their videos appear in a right hand sidebar called "Sponsored Videos" in the results of desired search terms.

It works pretty much exactly like AdWords. You bid on terms, set daily limits, etc. You only pay when someone clicks to watch.
