monitor-560634_640As my “How To” blogs always seem get a lot of interest from Google searches – I thought I’d try to find out The top how to searches on Google.

So, I hoped over to Google Tops trends, which shows you the most searched items of 2014.

Google tells us we searched trillions of times in 2014!

How fascinating is that!  Its hard to imagine now, what we did before Google, we would have to look in a book, buy a book or even go to the library to look up the information we needed. Or if it was something more technical such as How to make a professional animated video  or a problem on social networks (which I realise we didn’t have back then) such as How to review and remove Facebook apps you might just hire someone to do that for you.

You can basically find out how to do practically anything on Google web search or any search engine actually. In the past I’ve searched for things like how to replace an iPhone screen or how to replace a laptop hard drive and been able to do this from the tutorials that I have found.

If you ask anyone how to do something if its too detailed or they don’t know they will generally say – Google it. Or maybe they will send you a link from “Let me Google that for you” which is a fun website for all those people who find it more convenient to bother you with their question rather than google it for themselves.

 The Top How To Searches on Google

How to…

  • How to draw
  • How to kiss
  • How to crochet
  • How to meditate
  • How to knit
  • How to twerk
  • How to squat
  • How to shuffle
  • How to revise
  • How to wallpaper

It does make me wonder what these searches say about us.  My first impression is that these searches are probably the younger generation, although how to crochet and how to wallpaper have me stumped.  It also says a lot about how people search, short and to the point. they are hoping to find their answer from that. If you wanted to refine your search of course it would be better to be more specific and to put a few more words in such as How to draw a cat on the ipad –  The more specific searches that contain a phrase are what SEO guys all call a Long Tail Keyword, which they will put in their posts so that you can find them.
