Searching for Connections- Recent Google Search Trends

Search Engine Watch has carried out some analysis of Google Trends data to see what people have been searching for during the pandemic.

Some of the findings included:

  • There have been big increases in Google searches for certain phrases over the last few months.
  • Some were expected, such as “virtual meetings”, others less so – one of the more troubling Google search trends was “get away with murder”!
  • A lot of people were looking for physical comfort – everything from “chocolate” to “hot tubs”.
  • Others sought an emotional or spiritual connection, including “virtual dating”, “prayer” and “virtual churches”.
