These are the top Google searches from 2015 : #1 is Definitely a Surprise

Google’s list of top-trending terms refers to queries that experienced the highest level of traffic over a sustained period of time during 2015 and were not nearly as popular the previous year. 897 million searches were made for topics relating to the terrorist attacks in Paris, while there have been 338 million searches so far relating to the 2016 presidential election.

Take a look at Google’s list of the top trending searches of 2015 below. The term “trending search” means these queries had the highest spike in traffic over a sustained period of time during 2015 as compared to 2014.

  1. Lamar Odom (yeah,I had no idea who that was either)
  2. Charlie Hebdo
  3. Agar.io
  4. Jurassic World
  5. Paris
  6. Furious 7
  7. Fallout 4
  8. Ronda Rousey
  9. Caitlyn Jenner
  10. American Sniper

In technology, the top consumer searches probably won’t surprise you, though they are a mixed bag:

  1. iPhone 6S
  2. Samsung Galaxy S6
  3. Apple Watch
  4. iPad Pro
  5. LG G4
  6. Samsung Galaxy Note 5
  7. Samsung Galaxy J5
  8. HTC One M9
  9. Nexus 6P
  10. Surface Pro 4

Some go without saying, but there are probably at least one or two things on that list that surprised you. For example, Ronda Rousey was the eighth most popular search. The 28-year-old American is a martial arts star in the Ultimate Fighting Championships who suffered her first defeat in November. And Agar.io came in third place. It refers to a popular video game in which players control a blob that has to consume other blobs to survive.
