Google didn’t comment on the story yet.

YouTube hauled in $825 million in 2010 and that comes from over 2 billion video views a day. In 2011 it’s estimated they’ll haul in $1.3 billion according to Mark Mahaney an analyst with Citi.

This is some huge news. The potential could make YouTube and Google the most important web presence ever and with YouTube connected to Facebook and Twitter you can imagine the domination this marriage will have with huge named stars showing up. People may just turn off their TV sets and watch Google and YouTube from now on.
