Do You Know What the Most Googled Word of 2015 Is?

2015 is almost over and as always, Google is saying goodbye to this year by releasing its annual list of most-Googled terms.

As always, some of the searches are pretty predictable. The most Googled fashion term is “How to walk in heels?” And of course, Adele is the most Googled artist because she pretty much was the most everything and everyone this year, with all those records she broke.
