Here’s What Aussies Googled In 2021

Surprisingly for a sports-mad nation, we looked overseas to the NBA when Googling, with the American basketball league the most searched-for term in Australia for 2021.

In fact the top seven most-searched terms on Google were sports related, with footy, cricket and Australia’s medal tally at the Olympics among the list.

Not surprising was our reliance on Google for news searches, with tragedies in the form of Cleo Smith, Price Philip, William Tyrell, and the ongoing COVID crisis occupying our searches.

Recipe-wise, everyone wanted to make gnocchi for some reason…

Below is the list, divided into various categories. All information comes from Google.
