Infographic: The Most Burning And Bizarre Questions People Were Asking Google In 2017

Infographic: The Most Burning And Bizarre Questions People Were Asking Google In 2017

Elena K.
Editoorial Head at Serpstat
At the close of every year, Google releases "Year in search" video and list of trending queries to give us a recap of how many things happened in the expiring year. This year the queries are divided into the following categories: "People," "Global news," "Consumer tech," "Global sporting events," etc.
According to this report, "how" became the most popular question word of 2017.
While Google's lists are based on search terms that had a high spike in traffic in 2017 as compared to 2016, we decided to run another research and gather the most bizarre and burning queries that were popular this year without comparing their volume to the past one.

We exported 25 000 search suggestions with non-zero average annual volume from our Google.US database. Then we filtered out search queries with search volume below 500, and divided the gained queries into groups according to the question words:

  • when;
  • how;
  • what;
  • why;
  • where.
Then we gathered the most awkward and burning ones. Here's an infographic, where you can find the results of our research. Enjoy!
