As 2022 draws to a close, let’s take a look back at the year that was, and what people were searching for. As it turns out, the search engine that made the biggest splash on Google is not Facebook or YouTube, but rather Wordle – the daily online word game that sucks up millions of players around the world in just a few months.
When we looked at our data, we saw that the most Googled item of 2022 was not the iPhone, but rather Airpods, which made sense since the wireless headphones are popular in the U.S., where Apple is dominant.
In 2022, the most searched news item was probably the Queen’s passing. The news that the Queen had passed away, at age 96, brought tears to many faces around the globe.
With more people using smartphones and tablets than desktops, searches conducted on these devices have increased significantly over the last several years.

The latter enables people to find out more about the products they’re shopping for by typing in a keyword or asking their Google Assistant.
