Google Year in Search


Check Out the Top Google Searches of 2017

The Google Year in Search data reveals top searches done on the Google Search Engine from around the world. According to Google, 2017 is the year people asked ‘how’ more times than ever. Some of the top queries were mostly centred around sad events that plagued the world in 2017 – Hurricanes, earthquakes, famine and refugees. And when people needed to know ‘how to help’, or ‘how to make a difference’, they turned to Google for answers.

Coming home to Nigeria, the top searches from our dear country border around politics, education, entertainment and the sort. ‘Is Buhari dead?’ happens to be the most asked question as a lot of uncertainties beclouded his health status earlier in the year. The rest of the data features lots of interesting queries – Banky W’s wedding, the monkeypox outbreak that occurred months ago, elections, movies, songs and some ladies looking for ‘Nail salon near me’. haha
