Obviously, search trends are always in flux. It’s impossible to stay on top of what’s trending. But, I ran across this article on the Digital Information World blog that list the top 100 Most Searched Words on Google last year, compiled by teams from Ahrefs and Siege Media. I thought it was pretty cool and I don’t mean to imply anything or suggest you use it in any form or fashion. I just found it cool.
Weather was the #1 word. YouTube to MP3 was at #5. Get this – Periodic Table was all the way up at #15. What? The letter y was #22. Slitherio was #25, and I have no idea what that word even is! Animal Jam was #35, Deadpool was #51, and as you might expect, Black Panther just made the cut at #97.
I think you might be surprised to see where words you might think would make the top 100 versus what actually made the cut. It’s a big bad world out there and people are searching for some weird stuff.
