Since 2006 Google Has Revealed How British Online Searches Have Changed

Google has highlighted how our online searches have changed over the last 15 years, from Shakira to Olivia Rodrigo, Robbie Williams to Piers Morgan.
People have Googled the top celebrities, song lyrics, recipes, and travel destinations in 2006 and today, according to the tech giant.
Maneater by Nelly Furtado, Sexy Love by Ne-Yo, and Unfaithful by Rihanna were all hot terms for karaoke lovers more than a decade ago, and England’s journey to the final of Euro 2020 played a huge role in Brits’ music searches last month.
The comparisons were released by Google to commemorate the 15th anniversary of its Google Trends tool, which was created in 2006 to provide journalists, scholars, researchers, and the general public with insight into global cultural and societal trends.

Britney Spears, Tom Cruise, actress Florence Pugh, Piers Morgan, and England and Manchester United footballer Jadon Sancho were the most popular celebrities in internet searches last month.
When it comes to athletic events, Formula 1 and Wimbledon were both in the top five searches this summer and 15 years ago, but WWE and the Tour de France were not in the top five in 2021.
In July 2006, the top celebrity searches by Britons were Johnny Depp, Robbie Williams, Christina Aguilera, and Lily Allen (shown).

In 2006, there was no Olympic year, thus it was not a popular search word, and there was also a World Cup, rather than the Euros, for football lovers.
Together with the Euros, the Copa America was one of the top five athletic events that British searched for in 2021.

When comparing fitness programs, stomach exercises, cross training, and Pilates were all prominent search terms 15 years ago, but today Hiit workouts, pelvic floor exercises, and kettlebell workouts have taken their place.
On a global scale, in July 2006, individuals were looking for places to visit in Las Vegas, Barcelona, Dubai, Italy, and Niagara Falls.
But, while Barcelona and Dubai were still on the list 15 years later, they were joined by Brazil, Bali, and the Maldives as Google users around the world looked for exotic vacation spots.
In terms of prominent persons, Shakira, Paris Hilton, and French player Zinedine Zidane were all among the top global searches in July 2006, but Olivia Rodrigo, Lionel Messi, and Roger Federer were among the top global searches in July 2021.
Tetris and Grand Theft Auto were among the top five most searched video games 15 years ago, but Sonic, Pokemon Go, and FIFA 22 have since supplanted them.
Unsurprisingly, coronavirus topped Google’s list of “big hitter” search phrases for 2020 among UK tech users last year.
It accounted for four of the top ten searches, ranging from symptoms and pandemic updates to the Dine Out To Help Out campaign.
Millions of queries about how to make face masks and hand sanitizer were sent by those looking for ‘How to’ answers to cope during lockdown.
The third most often requested topic was on how to prepare bread, which explains why there was a shortage of flour in shops during the crisis, and millions sought home hair cutting and style tips.
With the government advising people to stay indoors except for needed visits, many people saw online classes by Joe Wicks, the country’s PE teacher, as a lifeline.
‘Joe Wicks kids workout’ and ‘Joe Wicks workout’ were the top two fitness searches.
