What is Google’s A Year in Search?
“Google reveals the Internet’s spirit of the times through an exploration of the over one trillion search queries we receive each year,” reads a statement by the tech giant.
“In addition to year end Searches, which highlights the top trends of the year, we also have several tools that give insight into global, regional, past and present search trends.”
“Google Search tools can never be used to identify individual users because we rely on anonymised, aggregated counts of how often certain search queries occur over time,” it added.
