Google Top Search Terms in Canada for 2021

Google Top Search Terms

Every year, Google releases a list of the top search terms or trending search terms for that year. Back in 2010, it was called Google Zeitgeist but now it’s called Googe Trends. Last week, they released this year’s list in a blog post entitled “A look back at Canada’s #YearInSearch: 2021“.

They also posted a tweet on their official Google Canada account on Twitter:
