This is what the world searched for on Google in 2018

As we reach the tail end of another year, Google has released its top searches of 2018.

After quitting the show, she said she felt she was "the most hated girl in Britain".

The most searched term globally, however, is World Cup. From celebrities to more personal concerns, South Africans have Zuma, listeriosis, Global Citizen, Winnie Mandela, HHP and Loadshedding at the top of their searches list. The contest, which saw France claim victory over Croatia in host country Russian Federation, was Ireland's most popular search term.

That was seen with most of the searches being celebrities who died in 2018. In the top 10 overall list, sporting events and entertainment were the top topics that dominated search queries. The fifth most popular "What is." search is "What is the Commonwealth". The company also mentioned that "How to.' and "What is.' are among the most interesting searches".

Despite the country's absence from the tournament, this year's World Cup topped the list.

In terms of individuals, the most-searched names: Meghan Markle (again), Demi Lovato, Sylvester Stallone, Logan Paul, and Khloé Kardashian. The most-searched movie in the United States was Black Panther, followed by Incredibles 2, Deadpool 2, and Avengers: Infinity War.

The top personalities list reflects three opposition politicians, the late Swedish musician Avicii and two sports stars, and five other figures related to current affairs and news events.
