This is what the world searched for on Google in 2018

Google on Wednesday released its "Year in Search 2018" report to list down all the significant search queries that took place in India.

First up, and rather unsurprisingly, sports dominated the top ten Google searches of the year. However, having been modelled on the English Buggery Act of 1553, the provision has been understood to penalise sodomy and any form of sexual activity which would not ordinarily result in procreation. The top list also includes three Hollywood movies that all happened to be Marvel blockbusters, namely Avengers: Infinity War, Black Panther, and Deadpool 2.

Google also has a "Year in Search 2018" webpage that breaks down the top searches into several categories.

Yankees drew their Patrick Corbin line before spurning
Therefore, if they are hesitant to overpay for an older pitcher, Philly could turn their attention to a former A.L. The Post's Joel Sherman reported that the Yankees had been steadfast on a five-year deal for Corbin.

The extreme weather was a running theme, with many Google users searching for ways to bleed radiators during the Beast from the East, and banish fruit flies during our unusually warm summer. Wink-girl Priya Prakash Varrier surfaced as the most searched personality on the search engine in India, followed by Priyanka Chopra's spouse Nick Jonas, while Chopra herself came at the fourth place. Unsurprisingly, the Royal Wedding takes the number one slot in the United Kingdom news, number four in the global news category and number eight in the U.S. news section. The fifth most popular "What is." search is "What is the Commonwealth".

Google SA said this year's searches showed that South Africans had a keen interest in local celebrities‚ as well as news and events - while the most-asked questions list revealed an awareness of‚ and curiosity about‚ what was happening in the world. The top news topics searched for across the globe were World Cup, Hurricane Florence, Mega Millions Result, Royal Wedding, and Election Results.

By March, the movie became the highest-grossing superhero movie of all time in the US, and was the 5th top-trending keyword of 2018.
