Top Google Searches of 2017

Every year Google releases the top 10 searches of the previous 12 months, both for the US and Globally, did you Google all of these in 2017?

Global Searches

  1. Hurricane Irma
  2. iPhone 8
  3. iPhone X
  4. Matt Lauer
  5. Meghan Markle
  6. 13 Reasons Why
  7. Tom Petty
  8. Fidget Spinner

US Searches

  1. Hurricane Irma
  2. Matt Lauer
  3. Tom Petty
  4. Super Bowl
  5. Las Vegas Shooting
  6. Mayweather vs McGregor Fight
  7. Solar Eclipse
  8. Hurricane Harvey
  9. Aaron Hernandez
  10. Fidget Spinner

For the most part these 2 lists are fairly different. Of those that appear on both lists: Hurricane Irma, Matt Lauer, Tom Petty, and the ubiquitous Fidget Spinner that stores are now overstocked with, unlike last year's entertainment focus this is more diverse.  From a natural disaster to the latest novelty to non-stop scandals 2017 kept us on our toes.


Unlike previous years there's nothing really on the list that needs explaining.  For the most part the list is major breaking news or celebrities who died.  The exception to that is the one listed celebrity who got engaged rather than passing away.  In case you don't have any teenagers in your house 13 Reasons Why is a TV Series based on a book by Jay Asher.

For those who have never heard of before, it is a multiplayer game released in April of 2015.  The players control a cell in a map representing a petridish.  The players goal is to gain as much mass as possible by swallowing smaller cells without being swallowed themselves.  While we're not sure why this game is so exciting, 50 million plus Android downloads say there's something about it people love.
