These are the most Googled word searches of 2020

Google has revealed its ‘most searched’ list for 2020 with one of the most searched terms the word ‘why.’ Which honestly makes perfect sense considering the mess of a year we’ve been hit with.

“2020 was a year of deep questioning, as the world searched “why” more than ever,” Google said.

“In times of uncertainty, people seek understanding and meaning.”

And as you can see from the video below, Dubai – and its startingly empty lockdown streets – became one of the visual symbols of the year.

As well as people searching for answers, there were also some obvious searches including ‘Coronavirus,’ ‘election results’ ‘Kobe Bryant’ and ‘how to cut your own hair.’ Which sadly is something the DubaiLAD team has been guilty of at times during 2020.
