Like every year, Google takes stock. First, it showed us the most viewed videos on its streaming platform and now it compiles the list of most popular searches throughout 2020. Masks, cooking and security measures against contagion have been the main protagonists.
When the supermarkets ran out of stocks of flour and yeast , Google users searched for how to “make homemade bread.” Searches for “making cloth masks” were also popular.
We had to take refuge at home to stop the spread of the virus and we looked for ways to entertain ourselves as with the stories of Ana Milan. Google has asked the actress to summarize these most popular searches.
The Spaniards this year have consulted the most famous search engine for pastry recipes to make donuts or homemade cookies; applications to make video calls at work, in class or with the family; and they have consulted series and entertainment programs to spend time in front of the television. Gambit de Dama, The strong house and The island of temptations have been the big hits.
Even the United States elections have been one of the most consulted and commented events of this 2020 in the search engine by Spanish users. But, above all, the virus has focused all our attention, “how is the coronavirus spread” has been one of the most recurrent searches as well as “when do the hairdressers open”, “when the state of alarm ends” or “when You can travel to another province ”.
