Google has an annual tradition where it releases the top trending searches for the year. To continue with this tradition, Google has released the top trending searches for the year 2018.
The searches have been broken down into different categories such as News, Actors, People, Movies, and more. The searches are not calculated by volume of total searches but rather by the increase in interest from 2017 to 2018 in a specific topic.
The 2018 World Cup in Russia was the top trending search overall. Demi Lavato was the most searched musician, the most searched actor was Sylvester Stallone and Black Panther ended the year as the most searched movie.
