Coronavirus, ASUU Strike, Rema & Hushpuppi Among Google’s Top 2020 Search Trends In Nigeria

Google has revealed the top search terms used in 2020. The top search globally was, of course, coronavirus – and that drove people to flock to Google search to make sense of the changes to their lives and adapt to new ways of living.

Others include US election, US president-elect, Joe Biden, Google Classroom, ASUU, Zoom Live, Rema and Naira Marley which were on the minds of Nigerian consumers this year, according to Google’s list of the top trending searches by Nigerians in 2020, released Wednesday morning.

These search trends don’t reflect the most-searched for words and phrases across Google, but rather those that saw high spikes in traffic over a sustained period of time during the year, as compared with 2019.
