has released its yearly ‘Zeitgeist’, which reveals what we searched for online in 2013.
Prince George, Peter Capaldi and Nigella Lawson, who were at the centre of big announcements last year, proved to be very popular online. The ‘How to…?’ searches reveal a diverse range of requests, such as ‘how to make pancakes’, ‘how to write a CV’ and ‘how to draw manga’.
Most of the top 10 searched movies were box office hits, including ‘Man of Steel’, ‘Skyfall’ and ‘Life of Pi’, while the soap operas ruled the television searches. Rome topped travel searches and 2012’s Gangnam Style scored surprisingly high in the music list.
As well as presenting the individual lists, Google Zeitgeist 2013 allows users to explore the top 100 search trends and what trended where throughout the year.
Take a look at all the trends here and let us know which ones you searched for throughout 2013.
