Google Publishes List of Top 10 Searches in Canada for 2018

Google has today published the list of top 10 searches in Canada for 2018 and looks like sports dominated the trend throughout the year. Canadians searched for updates from half a world away as Tessa and Scott skated into Canadian hearts and the Olympic record books in Pyeongchang.


‘World Cup’ and ‘Winter Olympic Games’ were the top two most searched terms during the year. Searches for the Winnipeg Jets spiked across the country during their playoff run, whereas William Nylander landed among the top trending athletes of the year on Google Canada.

“In entertainment, Black Panther pounced on the box office and Google search activity, while the release of Bohemian Rhapsody sent Canadians searching for footage of 1985’s Live Aid concert and Queen frontman Freddie Mercury.

From the heartbreak of losing Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade to the heroes of the cave rescue in Thailand, the 2018 Year in Search reflects back to Canadians another eventful twelve months through the lens of Google Search.”
