Google’s 2020 Year in Search

A Year in Nigerian Search: Coronavirus, Joe Biden, Davido, Kobe Bryant and pornstar martinis trend on Search.

We now have Google’s 2020 Year in Search as Google announced the results, sharing what the world, and Nigerians, searched for, asked about, listened to and watched in 2020.

Google’s 2020 Year in Search compiles the moments, people, topics, events, and places that captured the world’s attention this year. Just as Search helps people to explore and discover a world of information, there are many ways to explore the year through the lens of Google Search. From overall global stories to hundreds of top 10 lists of trending topics across pop culture and lifestyle, sports, music, news, and more from across almost 70 countries.

Coronoavirus was top of everyone’s minds this year and the pandemic’s impact is reflected in the Year in Search lists. Pandemic notwithstanding, Nigerians interest in celebrities, music, movies and TV shows showed itself strongly again in this year’s Year in Search lists.

From ‘how to make hand sanitizer’ to ‘Rema’, ‘Betty – Butter’ and ‘Mulan’, Nigerians use Search to explore their world.
