‘How to make a baby’ and ‘who is the president of the Philippines’ were among the most popular questions put to Google by Filipinos this year.
An examination of Google Trends can offer a fascinating insight in the burning concerns of the nation over the past 12 months.

Google trends also offers insights into where in the country certain questions were most popular.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, ‘how to sleep’ was the most popular ‘how to’ search in the crowded and noisy areas of Metro Manila, Central Luzon, Calabarzon, Central Visayas and Davao.
Online trends also left their mark, with queries about celebrity lookalikes peaking in April after a quiz from a site called WittyBunny started doing the rounds on Facebook.
The question “Who is Lucia Joaquin” is related to a short horror story that also circulated on social media in April.
As to how anybody with access to the internet could need to ask who the president is, will perhaps have to remain a mystery.
