According to Google, Apple's 'iPhone 7' was the Second Top Search Term Globally in 2016

1af 88 cover top Google searches of 2016


According to a report released by Google, the top four search terms on Google worldwide in 2016 were Pokémon Go, iPhone 7, the late rock star Prince and Donald Trump.


Two movies made Google's top 10 global searches for 2016: Warner Bros.-DC Comics' "Deadpool," which came in at Number 7 worldwide overall, and 20th Century Fox-Marvel's "Suicide Squad" stood at No. 10. Interestingly, however, "Deadpool" was not among the top 10 movie searches in the U.S.


Among U.S. Google users, Netflix scored the top three most-searched TV shows, with "Stranger Things," "Making a Murderer" and "Fuller House" leading that ranking.


To compile the rankings, Google studied an aggregation of trillions of searches on the site this year. The company used data from Google Trends, filtering out spam and repeat queries. Google used an algorithm comparing the percentage increase in searches for a term over a specified time period; it also set a minimum threshold to limit queries with very small search volume from appearing on the list.
