Unsurprisingly, the Covid-19 pandemic was the most searched topic this year.

Google has released its annual Year in Search list for 2020. The list is a major reveal about the people who shaped the year, and the moments that captures the world’s attention. This year had a spike in searches because there is so much the human race needed to learn about, Re: Pandemic, not to mention we were at home a lot. The biggest questions revolved around the word “why”. “Why is Australia on fire?”, “Why is toilet paper sold out?” “Why are flights cancelled?”, and so on.

Back at home, it’s ironic that Coronavirus was not our most searched topic. Politics and local trending topics took centre stage. Papa Shirandula (RIP) was the most googled personality when it comes to loss and ‘How to file nil returns’ was the most searched ‘How to’ topic.
