Google has revealed the events, people and things that were searched for the most over the last 12 months.
As the year draws to a close, search giant Google has released a breakdown of its most searched terms - some of which being relatively predictable and others not so much.

Interestingly, the infamous 'Storm Area 51' event from back in September managed to attract so much attention that the term 'Area 51 raid' made it to 4th place on Google's news search service.
The search phrase 'what is Area 51 ?' also managed to rank #1 for 'what is' questions, while the phrase 'where is Area 51?' ranked #3 for 'where is' questions.

It's interesting that what started out as something distinctly tongue-in-cheek ended up generating one of the most talked about subjects of the year and thrust the secretive base firmly into the limelight.

Overall, Google's top 10 general search terms for 2019 were as follows:
  1. Disney Plus
  2. Cameron Boyce
  3. Nipsey Hussle
  4. Hurricane Dorian
  5. Antonio Brown
  6. Luke Perry
  7. Avengers: Endgame
  8. Game of Thrones
  9. iPhone 11
  10. Jussie Smollett

All a bit morbid. Shame there are not more positive things on there. Would like to know the age group of the people who researched all these.

I didn't think Area 51 would of made the list. Now yes we had the storm Area 51 issue but to me it didn't seem to gain much attention give the overall failed results it brought.

I figured Greta Thunberg would of made the Top Ten most searches given she also won the vote for Times Magazine.
