You will not find a list of the most searched words on Google, but there are many different Google sites that allow you to look at search volumes, and compare words to each other. I think I know the most searched word, it has over ten billion searches a year.
It is not all that easy to find a list of the most searched words of all time on Google, but you can find out the most searched words on Google over the last day, and compare the search volumes of different keyword phrases to each other.
In this article, I will not be telling you what the most searched words on Google are, because I can't do that, as it will always be changing, but I can tell you about a number of Google sites that allow you to find out information about search patterns.
Based on the research I've done, Facebook is the most popular search term, then You Tube, Google, sex, porn, and other big sites like Twitter.
Google Trends is a little confusing to use, but when you arrive, you get a list of the top ten hot topics, and hot searches. Then, you can type in a keyword, and see a little data relating to that keyword such as the search volume for that phrase over the years, and the sites with the most traffic related to that keyword.
Google Insights for Search is a little better at helping you find the most searched words on Google, but it still doesn't provide actual search volume numbers, you have to compare words to each other, and you can see the countries that do the most searches on those words, and you get the top ten searches and rising searches related to that keyword.
Google Zeitgeist is released yearly, and it is a list of the most searched words of a particular year. Actually, I don't know that it is a list of the most searched words on Google, but they list the fastest rising searches, and the fastest falling searches in different categories.
For example, in 2010, chatroulette was the fastest rising, and swine flu was the fastest falling. What does this tell us about the most searched words on Google? It still doesn't tell us what they actually are, just the fast changes in numbers over a year.
They don't even tell you how these hot searches are calculated, except they are the "hottest" searches of the last 24 hours. There is a list of twenty supposedly "hot" searches, and that's it. For January 1st, 2011, the number one "hot search" was hgtv dream home 2011. The number four one was horned frog. I don't know how they work out what is hot, but I don't think it's search volumes, but fast rising search volumes.
This is a pretty good little device. You can enter in a keyword, and get a list of keywords related to it, with actual search volume numbers. It still won't tell you straight out what the most searched words on Google are, but with the Google Adwords keyword tool, you can compare the words you think it might be, and see how many people are actually searching for them each month.
So in conclusion, there is no list provided by Google that tells you what the most googled words on Google are, but you may assume it has something to do with sex. At least you would think so. I typed sex into the Google Adwords keyword tool, and guess what came up?
You Tube has 755,000,000 searches per month, while sex only has 338,000,000. Facebook has (wait for it) 2,060,000,000 searches per month globally. That's well over 10 billion searches a year. I would have to take a guess and say that Facebook is the most searched word on Google.
Those are broad match not exact match search volumes by the way, the exact match searches are different.
I may be wrong, and it will always be changing, but that's a heavily searched word. Anyway, if you haven't joined already, join Factoidz, and get paid to write articles.
