Google has released its annual list of top searches around the world, including overall searches and searches in various categories.
Top queries reflect everyday questions, as well as the people and events that made headlines in 2018.
Certain events led to people searching for how to improve their everyday lives, Google notes.
For example, the passing of iconic celebrities resulted in an influx of searches for “how to be a good role model.”
Similarly, when first responders rescued a team of soccer players from a cave in Thailand, searches for “scuba diving lessons near me” increased by 110%.
Here’s are some highlights of top worldwide searches, and the top US searches in 2018.
