    Sidenote.
    We removed all NSFW queries from this list. What you see above are the top 100 ‘clean’ search queries. You can see the full list with NSFW keywords in Ahrefs’ Keywords Explorer.

    Before we move on to the next list of trending keywords, it’s important to understand what search volume is and how it works.

    Search volume

    Search volume shows how many times a given keyword gets searched for in Google per month. And because the search demand on many keywords tends to fluctuate from month to month, the number that we give you is an annual average.

    Sidenote.
    Here at Ahrefs, we calculate search volumes by modeling data from Google Keyword Planner against clickstream data (learn more here). This method has proven to be quite accurate and we keep tweaking our model to achieve even better results.

    I know Ahrefs has a ton of customers from all around the world, and hopefully everyone will find a fun keyword from their country in this list.

    You can see that, as with our list of US queries, most of the top global queries are branded.

    However, there are some brands that don’t make an appearance on the US list including WhatsApp, Daily Mail, and AliExpress. This makes sense, as none of these are US-based companies.

    There are also lots of searches for translation tools.

    If we sum the search volume from these keywords, we get over 1B.

    That means more people are searching for translations on Google than for Google and Amazon combined.

    Top 100+ Google searches in your niche

    Did you know that you can use the keyword ideas reports in Keywords Explorer to find the most popular searches on any topic?

    For example, if you search for “Netflix” and go to the “Phrase match” report, there are over 2.5 million keyword ideas sorted by monthly search volume.

    How is this useful?

    Imagine that you run a movie reviews website. You could filter this report for queries containing the word “review” to find the most popular Netflix shows people want reviews for.

    If you then add a Keyword Difficulty filter into the mix, you can narrow down the report to find the easiest topics to rank for.
