Google reveals our top searches for 2021

0

It’s been quite a year and that’s been reflected in the Google searches we’ve made in 2021 as we battled the pandemic, tried to find out relevant information and kept up with our favourite sports.

COVID was still a dominant search topic as we tried to work out how to get our vaccination certificates after the lockdowns in NSW, Queensland and Victoria.

Australians’ obsession with sport continued this year with the top seven searches related to basketball, football, cricket, tennis and the Olympics.

We also cheeres on Ash Barty, came together for Cleo Smith and mourned Prince Phillip and Bert Newton.

Google was also a place where we sought out information about a variety of things including the crisis in Afghanistan, William Tyrell and cryptocurrency.

And of course, Google is also our cookbook and Australians were searching for everything from gnocchi and lamb shanks to minestrone soup and curried sausages.

The top how to search was about getting a vaccination certificate followed by tying a tie.
