Google announced the top 10 searches worldwide for 2013:
Nelson Mandela, Paul Walker, iPhone 5s, Cory Monteith, Harlem Shake, Boston Marathon, Royal Baby, Samsung Galaxy s4, PlayStation 4 and North Korea.
Oh, yay! None of which have I any interest in writing about....I would rather see a longer list, perhaps the top 50 or 100. Then, I might find something with which I could connect.
I mean, 4 of those were global news and of worldwide interest: I make note of the news, and pay attention, but those are not topics I care to write about; 3 are for commercial products, and I don't give a rat's A$$ about any those mentioned, and the rest, I never heard of. I'm sorry for the families in the loss the two actors, but they were not on shows I watched, so I didn't know who they were at all/never heard of them, until the news item hit.
I wish "the Big G" would more greatly 'reward' articles that educate about serious issues..such as the corruption in our government and insurance industries, as well as the corporate gluttony and loss of jobs overseas.
THAT is what folks need to focus upon, and not all that shallow crap about toys, gossip stupid fads and sit-coms.
Those items were what people searched for the most in 2013. Here's the list of most searched movies on Google in 2013:
“Man of Steel,” “Iron Man 3,” “World War Z,” “Jobs,” “The Conjuring,” “The Great Gatsby,” “Despicable Me 2,” “The Purge,” “Pacific Rim” and “Mama.”
Right--I get that's what people are searching. I just wish, as I said, that they'd supply a longer list--like top 100 .. I don't know if that would show any more intelligent and less-shallow searches or not.
I guess, at this point in my life, I'm just disgusted with humanity for focusing on shallow, unimportant sh** ,.. LOL
Doubt that you really want to write on any of the top 50. Or even top 100 - they will already have 5,247,489,472,895,821,903 articles written on each one.
The most searched question was, 'what is twerking'? lol -
The most searched how-to question was 'how to tie a tie'.
I admit to being one of those searching the first question!
LOL My first reaction was, "WTF is 'twerking?' but my second reaction was not giving a sh** enough about some stupid new fad to look it up...
There are 381,000,000 results on Google for 'how to tie a tie'. The top result on Google built a whole website to answer the question: tie-a-tie.net. Bet he makes some bucks on that one!

If we only produce content that people are searching for, will this lead to better quality content ? Will this lead to the growth of the knowledge base? How will new knowledge enter the mainstream if content is only developed to satisfy current demand?

I just saw that our hubs will no longer automatically pull a summary for our hubs...Problem is I used that automatic feature for ALL my hubs, so does that mean I have to go back through all my 300+ hubs and add in summaries?I really hope not, that'd be a lot of work and if my hubs are showing up in...

I joined hubpages one month ago and started writing hubs on weekends because I am very busy on working days. I have published 12-13 hubs right now and they are featured (12 of them while the 13th is still under review). Though my score on each hub is above 50 but I am seeing no traffic coming on my...

Why do so many people ask questions that can be easily Google searched?While perusing the Questions I've noticed that half of them can be copied and pasted into Google, and very easily answered. What's the meaning of this?

When searching for a niche keyword, how many global or local monthly searches is your minimum?At what point is a niche too small to bother with writing a hub for it?
by Kathryn Skaggs 3 years ago
I am major curious about the answer to this mystery.... just how much traffic are those Hubs who make it to the HOT HUBS actually receiving? I know that most likely nobody is going to give this up with specific numbers.... but how about some averages as to what kind of traffic brings a...
