Google Year of How

Google Trends 2017

According to the official Google Blog, 2017 was the year we asked “how…?” 

Simon Rogers (News Lab Data Editor) points out that:

“As 2017 draws to a close, it’s time to look back on the year that was with our annual Year in Search. As we do every year, we analyzed Google Trends data to see what the world was searching for. “

“2017 was the year we asked “how…?” How do wildfires start? How to calm a dog during a storm? How to make a protest sign? In fact, all of the “how” searches you see in the video were searched at least 10 times more this year than ever before. These questions show our shared desire to understand our experiences, to come to each other’s aid, and, ultimately, to move our world forward. ” – source Google Blog
