Updated for 2013. Not that much has changed since last year. I also figured out how to get everything on the same page finally, so it looks nicer than it used to and you can actually see how the words trend across the decade.

And... updated this totally awesome quiz again for 2014. Almost doesn't fit on the page anymore. QM will be really sorry if he never features it and when he realizes the horrible mistake he's made there won't be space to fit all the answers!

Very boring update for 2015. Nothing new. But I merged the answer for "video" and "videos" since they're almost the same thing and so most people were not getting "videos." Slightly easier now.

I often google google when I forget that my address bar is also a google search box. I'm surprised and disappointed "breasts" didn't even sneak in once. Cool quiz.

There is tons of interesting information at google trends. I think I may some day use some of it to try and create more quizzes. If you look up the word "breasts" you can get some interesting stats. For instance, the search term is most popular in Zimbabwe.

When was Facebook made? I noticed that it is not on there until 2008, unless it just wasn't popular back then.

Was founded in 2004 but if you were on a college campus at the time or if you watched the movie The Social Network you'll remember for the first several years the two big selling points of FB over MySpace was exclusivity and more privacy controls. It didn't become a site open to the general public until 2006.

I'm surprised that Amazon is not on this list, also Bing. It's funny how Yahoo and Google, even though they are the most popular search engines, are on the list, but not Bing at all.

Bing? Does anyone actually use Bing?

Yes. It is actually the third most common used search engine, but of course I use Google, Google Chrome, Yahoo, and not Bing. But I guess lots of other people do.

Great quiz kalbahamut. I only got 13/27, but at least it beats 91.7% of test takers. About getting half right is enough for me.

How is yahoo 95% correct right now, but google is only 89% right now for "% Guessed Correct"?

I think because after updating this and resetting the scores, I posted a link to it on another front-page quiz about most popular websites. In that linked comment, I mentioned that Yahoo was in the top 10 search results every year for the past decade... so anyone clicking through that link probably guessed Yahoo first.

Before I reset the scores, Facebook was far and away the most-guessed answer, and if this gets taken a few dozen more times I imagine it will be again.

Finally, after practicing and memorizing, I got 25/27 and beat 100% of test takers lol.

Did your source get updated for 2015? If yes, might wanna consider putting data into two even year columns.

New data is available but I haven't updated the quiz yet. I might just make the font smaller.

I think the font is small enough. Sort into two columns and update.

Surprised sex, fuck, girls, porn or black cocks are not here. According to the movie TED 2, Black cocks was the most searched thing.

some words related to searches obviously looking for porn are pretty high up in the rankings but nowhere near the top 10.

I love how "test" is in the top 10 for 2004. I almost didn't try because it seemed so odd.
