It’s crazy to think how time just flies. Google is currently celebrating 15th anniversary of Google Trends. Google Trends originally came out in 2006.

As explained by Google:

“Though [Google Trends] data goes back to 2004, it became available two years later. This summer, Google Trends turns 15, so we thought it would be the perfect time to look back on trends of yesteryear and compare what people were searching for back in 2006 to today.”

The trends they’ve covered included:

  • 2020: “Election results”
  • 2019: “Disney Plus”
  • 2018: “World Cup”
  • 2017: “Hurricane Irma”
  • 2016: “Powerball”
  • 2015: “Lamar Odom”
