People were googling lots of things this year

[ Edited ]

Hi guys,

 

I just caught up with some articles related to Google's Year in Search 2017 top trending keywords that people have been searching for. Did you check it out yet? You can see all of it on Google's page here

 

I found the globally searched consumer electronics list interesting. Top 2 are not surprising really but I was not expecting number 3!

  1. iPhone 8
  2. iPhone X
  3. Nintendo Switch
  4. Samsung Galaxy S8
  5. Xbox One X
  6. Nokia 3310
  7. Razer Phone
  8. Oppo F5
  9. OnePlus 5
  10. Nokia 6

 

And the top "How to..." search term for some reason was this. Did any of you google this too and try it out?? laughing  thinking

How to make slime

 

Top 10 recipes (UK searches). I should have been one of the people googling these as I have no idea what half of these dishes are. Reading the list made me very hungry though. cat

  1. Chilli con carne
  2. Spaghetti bolognese
  3. Beef bourguignon
  4. Beef stroganoff
  5. Hot cross buns
  6. Dauphinoise potatoes
  7. Omelette
  8. Millionaire shortbread
  9. Bechamel sauce
  10. Chicken thighs

 

 

And since I'm from Finland I took a look at some of the top-searched stuff from there too. Some of my favourite top ones below. laughing They also searched "How to make slime" so it must have been some trending topic somewhere that I missed at the time...

  • How to get a boyfriend
  • What's the meaning of life?
  • What day of the week is today?
  • What helps with hangovers?
  • What does a woman want?
  • How do you know if an egg is bad?

Re: People were googling lots of things this year

I'm surprised at the Oppo 5....what the heck is that? (Don't bother i will just go and google it) LOL

I have never googled How to Make Slime... but I think this would be top rated as Halloween has just passed...

I am long past the time of looking at 'How to get a boyfriend'. Been there, done that, and got lots of T shirts Happy Dance

Also....if there was ever an answer to 'what do women want'...then you better let the guys on here know....Banana

I admit to googling the one plus five T but none of the other 9.

 

but I can’t say I’ve googled any of the others!

Re: People were googling lots of things this year

Of the top 10 trending keywords I googled number 5 (no surprise there) and number 6: 3310 was my second mobile phone and I was amazed it was being brought back.

Of the top 10 recipes I've not googled any as I know what all of them are and can cook the majority. I'm particularly interested in number 10. Were people googling to ask what a chicken leg was or how to cook it 🤣

Slime was I believe a big hit everywhere just before Halloween. I learned how to make it, not that I particularly wanted to know, on the Ellen Degeneres Show. But I certainly didn't google it as until seeing it on Ellen I'd never heard of it.

I didn't google any of the others.
