There are 8.5 billion google searches daily and an average of 99,000 searches per second. Most of us can say Google has been our go-to question-answer. Need to know how many ounces are in a cup? Google it. Wondering what you should eat for dinner? Google it. Can’t figure out a famous person’s age? Google it. Google has been operational for 25 years, answering questions and imparting knowledge on a variety of topics. 

Facebook was the most popular one-word search in 2022, with close to two-hundred and four million searches.
