Google Top Trending Searches of 2014: ‘Frozen,’ Robin Williams and World Cup

Frozen

Disney’s “Frozen” was the only entertainment title to break into Google’s top 10 ranking of U.S. trending searches for the year, alongside other major stories of 2014 including the suicide of actor and comedian Robin Williams, the World Cup and the Ebola virus outbreak.

Other top-trending movies were “Interstellar,” “Divergent” and “Gone Girl,” while the top TV shows among U.S. searchers were “Game of Thrones,” “No, You Shut Up,” “True Detective” and “Orange Is the New Black,” according to Google’s annual year in search report.

Google’s “trending” queries are searches that had the highest amount of traffic over a sustained period in 2014 compared with 2013. According to the search giant, that’s more reflective of current popularity than raw number of searches. More info is available at google.com/trends/2014.
