Find out who made the cut

Google released data on their most popular search trends of the year, and pop singer Demi Lovato, as well as mac miller and “Bohemian Rhapsody”, topping some categories.

Year In Search’s data is based on “searches that experienced a strong increase in traffic over an extended period in 2018 compared to 2017,” Google says.

Categories include ‘people’, ‘songs’ and ‘musicians and bands’.

GRAMMY nominated pop artist Demi Lovato topped the ‘people’ list, which also included the GRAMMY winner Eminem and GRAMMY nominees Ariana Grande, Rick Ross and Cardi B.

For ‘lost’ searches, Mac Miller was one of the top trending people, while the iconic 18 GRAMMY winner Aretha FranklinXXXTentacion and Avicii were in the top 10.

Lovato was also a trending name for musicians and bands, as well as Travis ScottMeek Mill and Childish Gambinowhich is on its last tour under the nickname.

Popular song trends were “Bohemian Rhapsody” (not surprising since the highly anticipated Queen biopic of the same name was published in November), “This Is America” ​​by Childish Gambino, DuckAriana Grande’s “God’s Plan” and “In My Feelings” and “thank u, next”

“To calculate ‘trending topics,’ Google uses an algorithm that compares the percentage increase in searches for a specific term over a period of time,” a representative at the Recording Academy said.

“Google is also implementing a minimum threshold to limit queries with a very small search volume from appearing on this list. For example, with no minimum threshold, a query searched once in 2017 and ten times in 2018 will appear to have a 1000% increase over 2017 which, although mathematically accurate, does not indicate a significant trend.

Google studied an aggregation of trillions of searches (or queries) that people searched on Google this year. Google used data from Google Trends and filtered spam and repeat requests to create lists that best reflect the spirit of 2018.”
