Google: Squid Game, the Eternals, Afghanistan, here are the top searches of 2021
Like every year, Google lists the most popular terms on its search engine. In 2021, Squid Game and the Eternets topped the rankings on the entertainment side. The Covid-19 is of course present, but it is overtaken by the Taliban takeover in Afghanistan. Alec Baldwin is the most sought after personality.
It is now Google’s turn to take stock of the year 2021. Last year, the coronavirus surprised no one by standing at the top of the search ranking. 12 months later, the pandemic is still at the heart of concerns, but other events stole the top spot from him. On the news side, it’s the seizure of power in Afghanistan by the Taliban which most interested Internet users. The vaccine is of course one of the most sought after subjects, closely followed by the boom in cryptocurrencies, helped by the sudden and unexpected boost from NFTs.
Films, on the other hand, are largely dominated by Marvel productions. Yet recently released, the Eternals rose to the top of the podium, followed by Black Widow and Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings. Dune and Red Notice are also very well placed. Marvel also stands out on the series side, with titles like Wandavision and Loki. On the other hand, the firm could not do anything against the tidal wave Squid Game, which swept everything in its path this year.

We thus find the title “Drivers license” by Olivia Rodrigo, as well as the songs “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)” and “Industry Baby” by Lil Nas X. Battlefield 2042, Resident Evil Village, FIFA 22 and Genshin Impact are competing for first place in the video games category.

The death of DMX sadly pushed the rapper up in Google searches. It is placed alongside Joe Biden and Elliot Page, who are no match for the scandal Alec baldwin, which occurred on October 21. Finally, it is more or less surprisingly that cricket is the most sought-after sport of the year, especially the T20 World Cup. Football is never far away with Euro 2021, accompanied by basketball with the NBA.
