What were 2020's most searched mysteries ?

A new analysis of Google search data over the last 12 months has revealed some interesting global trends.
There is no denying that 2020 has been a very strange year and this analysis of Google search data by student accommodation website Fresh Student Living is no exception.

The results, which show the most frequently searched mysteries and conspiracy theories in countries around the world, show some interesting (and in some cases very unusual) trends.

Unsurprisingly, the idea that we never landed on the Moon topped the results in several countries including the UK, India, the Philippines, Norway, Ireland and Singapore.

In the United States, the mystery over whether or not Bigfoot exists managed to top the charts.

More peculiarly, 'lizard people' was the most searched conspiracy theory in Australia and Canada.
Other popular mysteries such as the Roswell incident proved popular in Germany and Italy, while Greece and Russia were particularly intrigued by the notion that Elvis is still alive.

There were also a lot of people interested in the possibility that certain celebrities are involved in the Illuminati, with France searching for Beyonce and Hong Kong searching for Lady Gaga.

People in Japan, meanwhile, were most interested in finding out more about the Bermuda Triangle.

A more specific breakdown of searches in the UK indicated that the Loch Ness Monster was one of the most popular mysteries along with crop circles and Bigfoot.

Strangely, both the UK and US also seemed to share an interest in the 'lizard people' conspiracy.

I thought "Why is Google search so useless these days?" might be up there.

Glad to see that Qanon crap hasn't topped the charts. There's hope for us, maybe?

Bigfoot, Lochness Monster, Lizardman, Were the Google searches for blurriest pictures and videos ever taken?

Interesting study. I’m not a Bigfoot believer myself, but the stories are fun to read.

Sooo, I copy and pasted " blurriest pictures and videos ever taken? " and Google Images gave me a page of some board game called Drinkopoly (the webpage results were largely "Why is my phone taking blurry pictures?"). And DuckDuckGo gives a page of blurry pics (the webpages started with the same as Google, but actually did have pages about blurry alien and bigfoot photos too!)... guess that clears up whether Google search is nothing but paid advertising...  I was really hoping for more, I should know better by now, lol.

This page should be the first that comes up with a search for this lizard people nonsense: https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/David_Icke
