The world was glued to their televisions on Sunday night for the FIFA World Cup final. The spectators, however, weren't just supporting and rooting for their teams to win the trophy; they were also looking for additional information about their favourite athletes, teams, and other similar topics. Right now, the thrilling game from yesterday has smashed Google search records.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai claims that the company's search engine experienced its biggest traffic volume in 25 years.

Pichai claimed that everyone in the world was looking for the #FIFAWorldcup.

Billionaire Elon Musk also used Twitter to give user feedback about the social media site. "24,400 tweets per second for France's goal, highest ever for  World Cup," he tweeted as the game went on.

This comes a week after Google published its "Year in Search 2022" study, which provided information on the manner and content of Indians' search queries in 2022.

In 2022, the Indian Premier League (IPL), CoWIN, and the FIFA World Cup were the top three trending searches, according to the research. This list, when compared to last year's data, reveals a dramatic shift in search trends because, in 2021, users primarily searched for keywords connected to the coronavirus.

The Asia Cup and the ICC Men's T20 World Cup, which were in fourth and fifth place, respectively, were two sporting events that Indians also searched about. The sixth place went to the VFX-heavy Bollywood film "Brahmastra: Part One - Shiva," while "KGF: Chapter 2" came in at number nine. Along with these titles, moviegoers looked up Kantara, Pushpa: The Rise, RRR, Kashmir Files, and Vikram. Additionally, this year's top 10 movie searches were Lal Singh Chaddha, Drishyam 2, and Thor Love and Thunder.
