Google has released the top trending searches for 2018 and the list has a wide variety of topics. In 2018, we were obsessed with the World Cup, hurricanes, shocking celebrity deaths, keto diets, the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh, the Cavs, and Demi Lovato. Google’s methodology for their top searches was not by total searches but rather the increase of interest from 2017 to 2018. You can see all of Google’s most searched trends and topics HERE.
