Top 10 Search Terms 2012

Top Google Searches 2012

Google have released the most common search terms of 2012, in a heart-warming video which is fit to bring the year to a close.

The majority of entries on the top 10 list aren’t any surprise. Whitney Houston, Gangnam Style and Hurricane Sandy are all expected, but I’m surprised to see the iPad 3 so high up the list.

  1. Whitney Houston
  2. Gangnam Style
  3. Hurricane Sandy
  4. iPad 3
  5. Diablo 3
  6. Kate Middleton
  7. Olympics 2012
  8. Amanda Todd
  9. Michael Clarke Duncan
  10. BBB12

For Google’s image search, it’s all about celebrities. Minecraft and the iPhone 5 are the only names to not be a music or film star.

  1. One Direction
  2. Selena Gomez
  3. iPhone 5
  4. Megan Fox
  5. Rihanna
  6. Justin Bieber
  7. Harry Styles
  8. Minecraft
  9. Nicki Minaj
  10. Katy Perry

Are there any names you are surprised to see, or not to see on the list?
