Google’s top trends show what piqued our interest most: from athletes and celebrities to the most-asked “how to” and “what is” questions.
In 2015, people’s search interests on Google were far-reaching, spreading from sports stars like Lamar Odom and Ronda Rousey to this year’s blockbuster film, “Jurassic Park,” and last year’s Oscar winner, “American Sniper.”
Many searchers wanted to know how to use the new Snapchat update, while others were asking Google, “What is Charlie Charlie?”
Google released more than 40 categories for its year-end lists, ranging from the top trending searches to the top trending people, “How-to” searches and travel questions.
“We define the trending queries as the searches that had the highest spike in traffic over a sustained period in 2015 as compared to 2014,” says a Google spokesperson. Google says tracking trends for the year, versus its top searches, is a better way to determine the topics and people that grew in popularity compared to last year.
For Google’s top trending searches of the year, Lamar Odom, “Jurassic World,” “American Sniper,” Caitlyn Jenner and Ronda Rousey led the list.
While Lamar Odom topped the list, Google’s top trending searches highlight an interest in movies this year, with “Jurassic World,” “American Sniper” and “Straight Outta Compton” all making the top 10. (But, oddly, even with all the movie buzz, “Star Wars” didn’t rank.)
Paris was No. 6, and two video games — Agario and Fallout 4 — ranked, as well.
