See the list

The coronavirus pandemic has changed multiple aspects of everyone’s lives, including what people have been searching for on Google.

Recently, Google released its ‘Year in Search’ report for 2020, indicating the most popular topics and queries among Pakistani citizens.

According to Google, some of the topics searched by Pakistani people included “kids’ home activities,” TV shows “dubbed in Urdu,” how-to “adopt a pet,” and resources for “mental health support.”

Also, Pakistanis were interested in previously-ignored topics like “gender equality.” As per the report, there was a 109% growth in the searches for ‘disease prevention’.

In addition, searches for “gender equality” saw a 40% increase, while those for “mental health support,” “charity work,” and “reusable” increased 100%, 122%, and 128%, respectively.


The report also revealed that “how to be productive” searches increased by 71%, and searches for “gaming chair” grew by 90%.

Furthermore, a whopping 700% surge in searches for how to “adopt a pet” was also seen. On the other hand, many people wondered if they could earn some more money, prompting a 223% growth in searches for “stock investing.”

Similarly, parents had very children-related worries as classes shifted online and adults started working from home. So, it resulted in a 250% increase in searches for “kids home activities,” a 328% rise in “dubbed in Urdu,” programs and a 140% increase for “easy dessert” recipes.
