NEW Google Trends reports reveal what Americans searched for the most in 2021 — and the results may surprise you.
Reddit user u/V1Analytics created a one-minute video that illuminated the top trending search terms from Google's 2021 Year in Search summary and Google's Daily Search Trends page.
The report began on January 6, 2021, which reveals that most people Googled"Capitol" and "Biden."
Given that January 6 was the day of the attack on the U.S. Capitol, those search results were not surprising.
What is surprising, however, is that six states actually conducted more searches on the Mega Millions jackpot that day.
Americans ended January by looking up GameStop after its valuation shot up in a stock market phenomenon.
