To compile this list of the most googled words on Google I had to compare the search volumes of individual words to each other on the Google Adwords keyword tool, because Google does not publish a list of the most popular searches on their site.
To work out the most googled words on Google I had to compare the search volumes of the most popular sites, and the suspected most popular words to each other on the Google Adwords keyword tool.
There is no Google site which tells you what the most googled words on Google are, and the ones they do have like Google Trends, Google Insights for search etc, are lacking in search volume figures, and they don't provide a list of the most googled words on Google in order.
Still, I was able to come up with a list of the most googled words in the world through a bit of trial and error, and I am pretty certain of the order of at least the first five. So here is my list of the most googled words on Google compiled in 2011.
Facebook is the most googled word in the world on Google, I'm quite certain of it. Facebook is a word that has search volumes of over 25 billion people a year, and it only seems to be gaining in popularity. Pretty soon, there will be more people in the world who have accounts on Facebook, than not those that don't, or maybe another site will take it's place before then, like Google Plus, but it doesn't seem likely.
You Tube has search volumes of about 10 billion a year, and it too is gaining in popularity. Google really likes video, so when you do a search on a popular song, you often get a You Tube music video, and some of them have had millions of views.
You Tube is widely recognized as the second most popular search engine after Google, in terms of how many people use it to look for things.
Yahoo gets about 6 billion searches a year, which is quite amazing, because they are nowhere near as big in the search engine market as Google, but they have other features like email, Yahoo messenger etc. I predict that they will gradually lose popularity until they are no longer even in the top ten.
Google gets about 5 billion searches on it every year, (based on the monthly figures I found), and the only reason it does not beat Facebook in search volumes is that people don't need to do a Google search on Google, because they are already there. There are many different divisions of Google, such as Google Plus, and I guess people want to see what's new in the Google world.
Sex is the fifth most googled word on Google, tying in search volume numbers with the word video. Sex and video both had the exact same number of searches as each other, which leads me to believe they are connected by relevance to each other on the Google Adwords keyword tool.
They both had 337 million searches a month, or about 4 billion searches a year, then comes porn with 3 billion a year, porno with a little bit less than that, and that's where I start to find it hard to think of words to compare with each other, because there are so many words to consider.
Some of the other highly googled words are Twitter, money, cheap, lose weight, and of course the names of celebrities like Michael Jackson, depending on whether they are in the news at the time.
