The pandemic which forced most Filipinos to spend more time at home pushed categories such as education and games as the most searched in Google in the Philippines.

Pinoys also showed their craze for Korean drama as searches for ‘Crash Landing on You’ and its lead star ‘Hyun Bin’ topped Google for 2020.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and Joe Biden also were international celebrities searched by Filipinos.

How to make dalgona coffee, how to wear a surgical mask, how to compute BMI, how to boost the immune system, how to make leche flan are the top five how-to’s Pinoys searched in Google.

“Looking back at the year that was, many Filipinos realized the importance of going digital now more than ever to search for answers and cope with the new changes happening around them. As per the latest SEA e-Conomy report, a significant number of Filipinos tried new digital services and 54% of these new consumers came from non-metro areas,” Geia Lopez, Google Southeast Asia’s analytical head for consumer packaged goods and retail said.

“Google is committed to making search constantly helpful to Filipinos as they rely on technology to look for useful and trusted information, and reap the benefits of the digital economy to succeed and grow,” she added.
