Published

The year 2022 has been nothing short of events that rocked the internet — from politics to sports, from pop culture to celebrities, and more. Google recently released its Year in Search 2022 which compiled the list of top items Filipinos searched for in the calendar year, and familiar search terms have emerged on top.

This year in Trending Searches, Filipinos keyed in “Halalan 2022”, “VaxCertPh”, and “precinct finder” the most, in that order.

Hit game Wordle came in at no. 4, while another, Axie Infinity, ranked no. 9. Shows like All of Us Are Dead, Encanto, and the keywords “Jeffrey Dahmer” also made the Top 10 list at no. 5, no. 8, and no. 10, respectively.

Rounding out the list is “Warriors vs Celtics” at no. 6, which of course was the 2022 NBA Finals series won by Golden State, and “Ukraine” at no. 7 due to the country’s on-going conflict against Russia.
