What Google's 2014 Most-Searched Words Say About Us
Feb 19, 2015
Viewers will no doubt remember Pharrell's famous song "Happy" (and his hat, which was a popular search term in its own right), the tragic loss of Robin Williams and Maya Angelou, and the cultural phenomenon that was the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. And, of course, who could forget the rise of the "selfie"? Rather interestingly, "guy selfie tips" far outranked "girl selfie tips."
When it comes to looking up anything, it's hard to say any other website has as much clout as Google. After all, "googling" something is a phrase we've all accepted into everyday life. With that much searching going on, Google's started an annual tradition of making an end-of-year video highlighting the year's most searched-for topics.
