What Are Americans Really Googling? This New Ranking Has the Answer

Some might embarrass you.

A new ranking shows what Americans are searching for on Google. Some of them you might expect. Others might embarrass you. Others could show just how lazy Americans are sometimes.

By looking at Google Trends data from 2014, Business Insider determined the 12 most popular searches on Google.

Topping the list was none other than Facebook while second on the list is Google. Most likely a result of autocomplete search of "YouTube," "You" was the third most popular search term. The full name of Google's own video service, "YouTube," was the fourth most popular.

Craigslist made the No. 5 spot, followed by curiosity about the birds and the bees ("Porn") and weather conditions. Landing at No. 8 was one of Google's own competitor websites, Yahoo, while "news" ended up in the ninth slot. And tied with the world's largest online retailer, Amazon, was "sex," followed by the final search term on the list "games."

Below you'll see numbers ranging from 0-100 beside each of the terms. The figures indicate the rates of comparisons between each item. For example, the graphic notes that "for every 100 times Americans search for 'Facebook,' they search for 'google' 80 times, 'you' 65 times and so forth."

While other search terms, such as Ebola and Ferguson, were unusually popular among some states, the latest findings are those that were the most-searched overall.
