For years now, Google has released a list of the most popular searches of the year. The 2018 list is out, and here are some of the highlights.
I filtered the searches to the United States, but still the most popular overall search was for “World Cup”, with “Hurricane Florence” coming in second. “Mega Millions” also made an appearance, which was surprising given how short-term that excitement was.
The top person of the year was Demi Lovato, with Meghan Markle and Brett Kavanaugh behind her. The top actor was Logan Paul and the top athlete was Tristan Thompson, both of which surprised me. The top diet was “keto”, the top food was “unicorn cake” and the top “how to” was “how to vote”. The top politician was Stacey Abrams, the top song was Bohemian Rhapsody, and unsurprisingly the top video game was Fortnite.
All in all, it’s a very interesting list. Getting insights into what people search for, even if it’s just in a fun format like this, can be very beneficial. We have a link to the full list in our show notes, which can be found over at digitalcast.org, so you can check it out for yourself.
