“How To Bleach Skin Professionally” Is One Of The Trending Searches Made By Kenyans In 2016


Google HQ

We have reached the end of year and Internet based companies are releasing reports of trends they have seen happen on their platforms for the year. Google is no exception and they released for their annual Year In Search for 2016 where they revealed what Kenyans were searching for the most for the year.

According to Google, Kenyans were searching mainly for events and personalities which was clearly shown by the various search results the company has been releasing monthly.

The top trending search made by Kenyans is not a shocker thanks to how the citizens love the game of football. Euro 2016 took the first spot as people searched on Google to find out more information about the tournament.

Second on the list is a personality, Donald Trump, who was recently named by Time Magazine as the “Person of the Year.” This was thanks to the recently concluded US Presidential election where Kenyans were able to follow the events live on Google.

Third on the list is an event and it is the Olympic Games that were held in Brazil. The Kenyan team performed quite well as the country ranked 15th on the table with 6 gold medals, 6 silver and 1 bronze.

Kenyans also used Google to search for answers ranging from “how to bleach skin professionally” to “what is happening at Aleppo” and also weird ones like “How to stop smelly feet.”

  1. Search engines have long filtered these results, pretending that these results are what truly people search for. While it is entirely possible that those are among top searches, what I strongly suspect is those are sanitized-for-public.

    I mean if this is anything to go by, we all are very sexual beings when we go online. And if this has inklings of truth, then Google must be lying about those results. And who would then trust search results from a lying search engine?

    Either they bring out the ugly truth that we all pretend doesn’t exist, or they rename those results and call them what they truly are: Top BLEACHED Year In Search.
