Google’s Year in Search: Hope Prevails Over Fear


“May you live in interesting times!” 2014 strongly honored that Chinese blessing/curse, judging by the top Google searches around the world. Trillions of queries reflected the turbulence of the past year with tragedy (the suicide of Robin Williams), triumph (the German World Cup victory), and even a plague for good measure (Ebola). Frozen topped all movie searches and Game of Thrones was TV’s king, while the most searched (and leaked) gadget of the year was the iPhone 6, followed by the Samsung Galaxy S5, Nexus 6 and Apple Watch. Flappy Bird was the most sought app (and was fifth overall, amazingly) while the preeminent GIF was Mexico national football coach Miguel Herrera’s joyous World Cup celebration.
