Robin Williams ranked top on a list of the top 10 Google searches of 2014, with the late actor’s name being typed into the search engine more than the World Cup, Ebola and Malaysia Airlines

It’s an annual trend for Google to publish the end-of-year rankings of searches made on the site, with the results being based upon the fluctuations in search topics year-upon-year, though Google has stated that this doesn’t have much impact on the overall rankings

Interestingly, neither the iPhone 6 nor the iPhone 6 Plus ranked within the top 10, despite Apple products frequently featuring in Google’s end-of-year rankings. This is somewhat odd given that the launches of the new smartphones were the most financially successful in history
