2016 was an eventful year. There was a flurry of celebrity deaths, one of the most controversial presidential
elections in American history, and several large political movements that surrounded it.
Every year Google publishes a list of the top searches from their web browser. Some of the top searches may

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton were the top 2 most searched people in 2016, which is not surprising.
However the 3rd highest searched person was Olympic athlete Michael Phelps, followed by Democratic
presidential candidate. Bernie Sanders.
The top "How to..." search was "How to play Pokemon Go" and was followed by "How to vote." Read more top
