Apple iPhone 8, iPhone X Among Top Google Search Terms of 2017

Apple iPhone 8, iPhone X Among Top Google Search Terms of 2017

People were also looking for ways to make their own eclipse glasses, fidget spinners and slime. The lists are based on search terms that had a high spike in traffic in 2017 as compared to 2016.

The iPhone 8 may not be Apple's ultimate flagship, but the curiosity around it ahead of its launch has put it on top of Google's most searched keywords list for this year.

Lauer was sacked on November 29 from NBC News following a secret meeting where his alleged victim and her lawyer told NBC brass her story of inappropriate sexual behavior from the "Today" show host.

If the nation's Google searches are anything to go by, this year the British public have been preoccupied by getting rich by buying Bitcoins. So popular search queries give us a good look into what people were thinking about over the past year. Lauer was just one of many prominent men in media, entertainment and tech who was called out for alleged sexual misconduct - a list that includes producer Harvey Weinstein, comedian Louis CK and music mogul Russell Simmons.

Interestingly, in the United States, neither Apple handset made the top 5, which included Hurricane Irma, Matt Lauer, the late Tom Petty, Super Bowl, and Las Vegas shooting. The actress announced her engagement to Prince Harry last month.

We were also similarly interested in Hurricane Irma in the Caribbean, which came in sixth.

Every year, the search engine brings out its "Year in Search" report to give a glimpse of the news, events and trends that dominated discourse.

Check out the full lists below.
