Google releases a list of most searched terms at the end of every year and the Google search list 2018 turned out to be quite interesting and impressive as the term ‘good’ was googled more than ever before – which can be seen as a positive something.
‘How to be a good citizen’, ‘good things to watch’ to ‘good singer’, ‘good listening’, these were some of the most searched terms on Google. The list includes overall searches, movies, how to’s, ‘what is’ searches, ‘near me’, news, personalities, sports, songs etc and the terms that made it to the top the search lists. Well, so many celebrities got married this year, some got into new relationships and some even broke up. Sadly the world also lost some great people and artists this year, and some new members are about to enter the world. Some sports stars achieved great success, some movies made it to the top of hits. So many things happened and yet, the ‘top searches’ list is over weighed by ‘good’ searches.
“In a year of ups and downs, the world searched for ‘good’ more than ever before. Here’s to all the good moments from 2018 and all the people who searched for them,” tweeted Google CEO Sundar Pichai as he released the ‘Year in Search; video.
