Danish Google trends for 2014: Ebola, Wozniacki and the iPhone 6
As the end of 2014 draws near it’s time for reflection in all walks of life and when it comes to the tech side of things, that means looking into Google search trends in Denmark for the year.
The Google trends for 2014, just released, showed that the most popular search of the year was the iPhone 6, followed by the 2014 World Cup in football and the late comedian Robin Williams. The 2014 Eurovision competition and the app game ‘2048’ rounded out the top five.
Denmark’s tennis queen had a great year on the court, but also on the keyboard as she topped the most searched Danish woman, followed by veteran actress Bodil Jørgensen – who was involved in an on-set accident this year, and Emma Pi, the winner of this year’s Eurovision for children.
It’s no coincidence that Kevin Magnussen was the most searched Danish man after making his Formula 1 debut, while outspoken Dansk Folkeparti member Morten Messerschmidt and Danish Eurovision participant Basim followed in his wake.
Conchita not the Wurst
Perhaps a bit concerning though, the most frequently asked question on Google was ‘What is Ebola?’ followed by ‘What is a patent court’ and ‘What is ALS?’.
Robin Williams topped the most searched celebrity, followed by the 2014 Eurovision winner Conchita Wurst and actress Jennifer Lawrence.
Disney’s ‘Violetta’ was the most searched series of 2014 in Denmark, followed by the two Danish series ‘1864’ and ‘Arvingerne’.
