    Google’s Top Search Terms for 2021 Dominated by the Euros

    2021 Searches 10, Dec 2021
    Craig Upton

    The countdown to the end of the year can only mean one thing; another round up of Google’s top search terms from the past 12 months.

    As usual, most of the terms dominating the rankings this year come as no surprise. While the overwhelming majority of top terms last year were COVID-related, this year was more about sports.

    In fact, the search term “COVID vaccine” plummeted all the way to number-four in the rankings, behind three sport-related queries.

    Google reported that ‘Euros’ was the top search term of 2021, followed by ‘Premier League’ and then ‘Christian Eriksen’. According to Matt Cooke, head of Google News Lab, the terms for 2021 show how much of the country took solace in entertainment and domestic duties as an escape from the unpleasantness of the past 24 months.

    ‘It’s no surprise that 2021 has revealed some interesting insights into the zeitgeist of the nation,’ he said.

    ‘During a year of unpredictability, we have turned to sport, entertainment, gardening, recipes and UK-based travel to get us through some of the most frustrating and difficult times,’

    ‘We have seen searches for prominent women dominate the top of our lists, as well as huge rises in second-hand and sustainability queries over 2021.’

    Clearly facing the crisis that is a temporarily social media outage, the most common question asked by Google users this year was “Is Facebook down?” Followed in second position by “Is WhatsApp down?” and “When will lockdown end?” these are interesting insights into the priorities of the masses.

    Not to mention, the inclusion of “Where does vanilla flavouring come from?” as the sixth most asked question of the entire year.
