This we Googled most in 2021

After a year of corona restrictions and empty stands at sporting events, this year’s European Football Championship, which was postponed for one year due to the corona pandemic, became a long-awaited sports party.

Therefore, it is perhaps not so strange that “EM 2021” was applied for most times this year.

And there is little indication that the football fever has subsided during the pandemic. In second place we find “Premier Leauge”, while third place goes to “vglive”.

The list also reveals that Norwegians have been curious about the RS virus after an increase in RS cases among children in Norway.

NIPH estimates that several thousand children may be hospitalized as a result of RS virus infection this winter.

These search phrases were used most this year:

What is…

In the top 10 list “what is” we find the “barrier limit” at the top, followed by “RS virus” and “parliamentarism”.

In fourth place we find “what is the Taliban”.

The Afghan extremist group Taliban has been at war with a US-led Western coalition in Afghanistan. Norway was part of the military coalition.

The conflict received a lot of attention when Western allies, after 20 years, withdrew from Afghanistan earlier this spring. The stain on the United States was total when the Taliban, after a rapid advance, took control of the entire country.

This is what most Norwegians wondered about:

The TV series took Norway by storm

You’ve probably heard of Squid Game, the series that went straight to the top of the streaming service Netflix.

The Netflix series, which has been given an age limit of 16 years, as it is described as violent and frightening, is the company’s most streamed self-produced series, according to Business Insider.

In addition, we have searched for a number of Norwegian-produced series and films such as “Not allowed to laugh at the cabin”, “Exit”, “Rådebank”, as well as the films “Pørni” and “the world’s worst man”.

These victories and films were most sought after:
