Google reveals the top searches of 2019
As you already know, Google knows what you're looking for. And every year, it compiles an exhaustive list of everything your busy little fingers and thumbs were searching in the previous 12 months.
With the year winding down, the online giant has crunched the numbers to find the top trending searches of 2019, in various categories.
Wellness was, as always, a big topic, with the intermittent fasting diet ranking as the #1 search under diets. Possibly on the other end of the spectrum, yummy recipes were also common, with shepherd's pie ranking at the top, and Popeye's Chicken Sandwich also making the list -- it also being one of the few fast food items of 2019 to inspire felonious activity. "Chaffle" ranked ahead of it -- not surprising, considering the "cheese waffle" is a staple for Keto dieters, who also pushed their way of life into the top five most-searched diets list.
As for news, the deadly Hurricane Dorian was the number-one trending search for 2019, but the "Raid on Area 51," which inspired a million memes but no en masse alien discovery, also ranked in the top five.
Vacation was also on our minds, with "Maldives" being the highest-trending destination for Google's "trip to..." search.
