No, 2020 has far from ended, however, is it too hard to guess the top Google Searches for 2020? With the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, we know what the world is searching for.
The word ‘Coronavirus’ would be right at the top of the Google searches for 2020. People might also use the word COVID-19 to search for it. It can be fairly guessed the top 5 or maybe even top 10 Google searches would be somewhat related to coronavirus.
In Pakistan the people searching for coronavirus are also searching for Pakistan coronavirus, update coronavirus, thank you, coronavirus helpers, coronavirus in Pakistan and coronavirus cases.
Also, as per a research paper the number of searches on Google for the word ‘prayer’ have increased greatly over the past few weeks. A research paper called “In Crisis, We Pray: Religiosity and the COVID-19 Pandemic” was released by Jeanet Sinding Bentzen, associate professor at the University of Copenhagen and executive director of the Association for the Study of Religion, Economics, and Culture.
In the Abstract Bentzen wrote, “In times of crisis, humans have a tendency to turn to religion for stress relief and explanation. The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic is no exception. I document that Google searches on prayer has skyrocketed during the month of March 2020 when the COVID-19 went global.”
Adding, “I find that the intensified searches on prayer during the COVID-19 pandemic is global: It occurs on all continents and for Christians and Muslims. Even Denmark, one of the least religious countries in the world sees systematic increases in internet searches on prayer.”
