What on earth have you been looking at online?

Another year is nearly over and Google are looking back at what everyone's been up to. Of course, in Spain, they won't get one of these nostalgiafests next year, because Google has fallen out with an entire country.

So what has everyone been searching for through Google in 2014? You'd have to assume the word 'nudes' and 'fappening' have ranked highly, but then, you also have to assume that Google have only decided to show everyone the PG results of this year.

Concerning the latter, you'd be right. Instead of searches for leaked photos of the nice lady from The Hunger Games, Google say that the number one search of 2014 was Robin Williams, after his untimely death in August.

In second place, unsurprisingly, was the World Cup while in third place was the delight that is Ebola. They were followed by missing Malaysian plan Flight MH370 and then the ALS/Ice Bucket Challenge. Oddly, at number six in the chart, was the infuriating Flappy Bird.

Then, finishing off the top ten, we find Eurovision winner Conchita Wurst, those folks who make up ISIS, the Frozen movie and the Sochi Winter Olympics.

When it comes to consumer electronics, the iPhone 6 topped the results, followed by Samsung Galaxy S5, Nexus 6, Moto G and the Samsung Galaxy Note.

Seeing as we're on the internet, you should stop reading all these words and have a nice time watching this thoroughly overblown video, made by Google themselves.

There's things landing on comets, science and medicine breakthroughs and some political movements... but no nudes at all.

    I looked up Delia stuffing for a recipe and got a stern look from Google
