Top 10 Google Searches of 2016 Featured

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 2016?

US Searches

  1. Powerball
  2. Prince
  3. Hurricane Matthew
  4. Pokemon Go
  5. Slither.io (the follow up to Agar.io)
  6. Olympics
  7. David Bowie
  8. Trump
  9. Election
  10. Hillary Clinton

Global Searches

  1. Pokemon Go
  2. iPhone 7
  3. Donald Trump
  4. Prince
  5. Powerball
  6. David Bowie
  7. Deadpool
  8. Olympics
  9. Slither.io
  10. Suicide Squad

Similar to 2015 these 2 lists are fairly different. Of those that appear on both lists: Pokemon Go, Powerball, Prince Slither.io, Olympics, Trump and David Bowie, most are entertainment related.  

For those who have never heard of Slither.io before, it is the follow up to the multiplayer game Agar.io released in April of 2015.  Instead of swallowing other cells in Slither.io you are a snake working to eat other snakes.

Pokemon Go is the search nearest to the top for both the US and global searches.  The hugely popular follow up to Ingress from Niantic Labs had people all over hunting for Pokemon, with some unfortunate instances of those playing in inappropriate places, like the Holocaust Museum and the 9/11 Memorial.
