This is what the world searched for on Google in 2018

Google on Wednesday announced "Year in Search" results, looking back at the top search trends of 2018 in India.

With both a royal wedding and baby announcement, perhaps the least surprising name on the list is Meghan Markle, the actress and activist turned royal. While the lists include topics from many fields of endeavor, music-related searches were especially popular this year.

The World Cup obviously benefitted from being a quadrennial event and football being the most popular sport in the world propelled the event's searches to the top of the overall list too.

That said, the residual effects of Corbin signing with the Nationals - not the Yankees - could hurt the Red Sox. Entering this offseason, the Sox have payroll flexibility and can add some quality free agents to the team.

The list of top trending searches globally included United States actress Meghan Markle, who married British Prince Harry, and a Black Panther film that debuted this year.

People also wanted to be good civic stewards: In the USA, the top "how to" searches were "how to vote" and "how to register to vote", followed by "how to play Mega Millions", and a few tech-related queries: "how to buy [the cryptocurrency] Ripple", "how to turn off automatic updates", and "how to get the old Snapchat back". The trends cover topics like movies, news, music, songs, sports events, and even searches such as "what is", "near me", and "how to". 2018 was also a year of tragedy.

First place goes to the question all of us still only kind of, sort of, maybe know the answer to; "What is Bitcoin" - oh, NBD, just the most famous cryptocurrency in the world. The most-searched movie in the U.S. was Black Panther, followed by Incredibles 2, Deadpool 2, and Avengers: Infinity War. The company also mentioned that "How to.' and "What is.' are among the most interesting searches".
