What We Searched for in 2017

What did we search for on Google in the year 2017? As always Google has announced the trends in the Search for the past year.

Every year Google make a list of what was most trending on their search engines in the past year. The results are organized in different categories or by Country. I have tried to make a list of the categories I find most interesting here in global searching:

People we searched after in 2017

1) Matt Lauer
2) Meghan Markle
3) Nadia Toffa
4) Harvey Weinstein
5) Kevin Spacey
6) Gal Gadot
7) Melania Trump
8) Floyd Mayweather
9) Michael Flynn
10) Philippe Coutinho

 I guess some of the person on this list, was wishing not to be on the list this year.

1 iPhone 8
2 iPhone X
3 Nintendo Switch
4 Samsung Galaxy S8

I guess the new Star Wars movie was too late in 2017 to make it to this list. I have seen a couple of above movies this year, but still a couple of them I want to see in the new year.

I hope you found above interesting reading. Feel free to drop me a comment or question below if you have something on your mind.
