What is Google’s ‘Year in Search’?
Google reveals the Internet’s spirit of times through an exploration of over one trillion search queries it receives each year.
In addition to year-end Searches, which highlights the top trends of 2016, Google also has several tools that give insight into global, regional, past and present search trends. Google Search tools can never be used to identify individual users because the company relies on anonymised, aggregated counts of how often certain search queries occur over time. – SAMAA
