10 Things People Often Google Search
Have you ever sat and wondered what people are really looking for on the internet? What are their interest, what kind of knowledge most people seek and things like that? There are some weird searches going on out there in the Google sphere. Like people searching google for "What to Search on Google!" Yes, some people have no idea what they are looking for when they load up the big 'G' in their browsers. But here are a few search terms which always gets high consistent searches through Google. Below you will find a list of popular searched terms entered into that cute little Google search text box.
1. What Is My IP?
Who knew that millions of people monthly are still searching to find their IP addresses? What is the reason for this kind of search? Is it that people all over our planet are being controlled by the government to find their IP addresses and then secretly submit it to the government to watch their internet activities? Or do they believe that finding their IP address is the gateway to middle Earth where eternal life awaits? Nah, What is my IP is a common Google search term because many home users have begun to setup their own home wireless networks and in that setup process, IP is often mentioned.
2. What Time is it?
I just don't know, is it me or I just think people who search for what time is it didn't know that that they can get the time from a watch, clock, computer, tablet, smartphone, microwave and now even smart toilets? Time searchers have dominated google searches seeking to find that special time which will give them eternal powers or may be able Time Travel. OK, forget that, I am just being cynical. Normally people do a time search when they want to know what time is it across different time zones.
3. How to Register To Vote.
With all the mess these politicians have dumped on the citizens of the world. One would think that one Google search term would be "How to knock off politicians." Yet millions of people are heading to Google to search for how to register to vote. They say you can lead a donkey to the river but you can't force them to drink. Because no matter how you enlighten the masses, they will still end up casting their useless ballots and using Google to search on how to vote.
4. How to Tie a Tie.
How to tie a tie is a top google search term simply because people are not tie tiers. But who the heck dictates how a tie should be tied anyway. You can tie a tie anyway you want. If you can tie shoelace, tie an animal or tie your ex. You should be able to do just the same with your neck tie. I know Google has been hit by me for searches the opposite of that. Like "How to untie a tie."
5. What Song is This?
If you have a song in your head humming, you can just place your head on your computer and then type into Google search asking the Search God what song is this? Then Viola! like magic Google tells you. Well, that is how I wished it could work anyway.But you will have to at least know the chorus or part of the song title for Google to give you any substantive results for this search.
6. Can You Run It? / Can My PC Run It?
Basically, my answer would be no if you asked me. If Google was anything like me the world would be a better place. Who doesn't Google just answers no? Maybe I should Google that one too. Can You run it is a common question by many gamers searching for the big yes from Google results asking about their computers being able to run certain kind of games. Games today require huge amount of memory, great graphics and processing power. So when new games are launched, many gamers who wish to waste their parents college money in the basement sipping beer while massaging the console will ask if they can run it, or if their computers are able to run it.
7. How Many Ounces in a Pound?
Seems like you have millions of people out there have something weighing. For some strange reason, this weight question pulls massive searches from Google monthly. But let me put an end to this miserable search right here. Google results are 16 Ounces = 1 Pound. There you go, now don't bother to bother Google with this search. Just bookmark this page and you will always have that info at your finger tips.
8. How Many Ounces in a Cup?
What the heck is up with people being fascinated by ounces? how many ounces here, how many ounces there. This question should really be annoying my good friend Google everyday. So let me also put this to rest right here on this page. There are 8 Fluid Ounces = 1 US Customary Cup.
9. When is Mothers Day?
You really ought to be quite ashamed of yourself for using Google to search for this. This question is one of Google's top searched terms. Somehow, many people seem to forget when is mother's day but remembered that they didn't upload the video of them self microwaving the cat. Mother's day in the US and Jamaica is held on the Second Sunday of May.
10. How To loose Weight?
It is sad that millions of us have to ask Google this. How to loose weight is a common search term which Google spends a lot of time answering. This question probable has been asking from the beginning of when foods stopped being naturally prepared. There are so many answers to this question on Google. But guess what, the commonalities in answers all remain the same. Eat right and exercise. Voila! weight lost.
Google serves up billions of searches annually. Many times the results do not change unless a site has beaten another website in ranking and the top ten search results get scrambled a bit. The Google search has changed the way how information is quickly and easily accessed anywhere in the world by just asking a few basic questions. But my question is, What will you be searching for on Google today?
