what we have searched the most in Google in 2017

What we look for in Google says a lot of us: our tastes, interests, doubts, things we want to buy, etc. There is no better thermometer than this to analyze the trends of a country, and now that 2017 is over, it is time to discover what Spaniards have looked for in the last 12 months.

As every year, Google presents a report in which they collect the most popular searches , dividing them into different categories. First let’s start with Spain, and then see the overall results.

Most searched in Spain in 2017

As we will see below, Catalonia has been the protagonist of many searches by Spanish users, who have been interested to know more about “Puidgemont”, “What is DUI?” or “What is article 155?”

There are also many names of celebrities that have left us in this 2017 , from areas as different as politics, fashion or sports: Carme Chacón, Bimba Bosé, Angel Nieto or Chiquito de la Calzada.

The iPhone 8 beats the iPhone X in searches.

As for technology , it is striking that the iPhone 8 has surpassed the iPhone X, being the only gadget that has been cast among the most sought after items of the year.

As curious facts, we see that the fidget spinner appears, a fashion that seems to have lasted a few weeks. HBO also appears, something that ‘Game of Thrones’ is sure to have a lot of guilt.

The most searched in Google worldwide in 2017

In the case of global searches, we see how Bitcoin appears in the top , accompanied by the iPhone 8 and (now yes) the iPhone X. The presence of the fidget spinner is repeated and it is surprising that the national cricket team of India is one of the most wanted things on the planet.

The scandals of sexual harassment that have shaken Hollywood have prominence, and we see how Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey appear on the list of personalities.


We must also regret the loss of celebrities loved and followed by millions of people, as is the case of Chester Bennington, Tom Petty or Matt Lauer.

In the list of films has also been cast a search for the Indian: ‘Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’, an adventure film directed by SS Rajamouli and starring Tamannah Bhatia.
