‘Wordle’ was the top search trend globally. That may surprise some of you, but Wordle was immensely popular for quite some time. Both Ukraine and Queen Elizabeth were also quite popular search terms.

When it comes to news, Ukraine was number one. That search term is followed by the death of Queen Elizabeth, election results, Powerball numbers, and monkeypox.

If you’re wondering who the most searched people were, well, that’s not hard to guess. Johnny Depp ranks first, followed by Will Smith, Amber Heard, Vladimir Putin and Chris Rock.
