The Most Popular Google Searches For 2013


Google has released its annual Year-End Zeitgeist ("spirit of the times"), which reflects on the people, places, and moments that captured the world's attention throughout the year.

The #1 trending search of 2013 was an international symbol of strength and peace: Nelson Mandela. Global search interest in the former President of South Africa was already high this year, and after his passing, people from around the world turned to Google to learn more about Madiba and his legacy.

Tragedies like the Boston Marathon, the 6th trending term globally, and Typhoon Haiyan, #2 on Google's global events list, also captured the world's attention. And human desire to help came through, with [donate to the Philippines] ranking highly around the world.

In 2013, people uploaded more than 1.7 million video versions of the Harlem Shake to YouTube, propelling it to the #5 spot on Google's global list; it was also the second most trending video on YouTube.

As far as technology is concerned, Apple' s iPhone 5s was a very popular search query ranked at the third place, followed by the Samsung Galaxy s4 (8th place) and the Playstation 4 (9th place.)

Here's a full look at Google's top 10 global trending searches of 2013:

- Nelson Mandela
- Paul Walker
- iPhone 5s
- Cory Monteith
- Harlem Shake
- Boston Marathon
- Royal Baby
- Samsung Galaxy s4
- PlayStation 4
- North Korea
