Google Top 10 for 2012

Yesterday, search giant Google, released data about their top UK searches of 2012. The list is as follows:

1. Euro 2012

2. Olympic tickets

3. Whitney Houston

4. Kate Middleton

5. April Jones

6. Netflix

7. NatWest Online

8. iPad 3

9. Gary Barlow

10. Gangnam style

Surprisingly Euro 2012 ranked higher than Olympic tickets and Whitney Houston had more searches than Kate Middleton. The iPad3 unsurprisingly made the top 10 as one of the most anticipated tech releases of the decade. At number 10 Gangnam style is not only the most watched YouTube video clip ever, but also the 10th most search term of 2012.

Knowing what people search for and why is all part of how we optimise sites here at boxChilli. However, unless you are lucky enough to have a website about Gary Barlow you may have to look a little deeper into the terms that are bringing customers to your site.
