Google’s (NASDAQ: GOOG) YouTube continues to gain visitors. It competitors have to be dismayed.

According to comScore, YouTube had a 34.3% share of all videos watched in the US during January, an improvement of 1.7 share points over the previous month.

The competition barely registered. AOL, Yahoo! (NASDAQ:YHOO), Viacom (NYSE:VIA), and Disney (NYSE: DIS) had embarrasing share figures, none posting a figure better than 3.2%.

Visitors to Google video sites spent an average of almost 110 minutes per viewer. No other large internet site was above 33 minutes.
