How we collected this data

To make the most comprehensive list of the the most searched people on Google, we first segment our database of 25B+ keywords to isolate all the individuals. We then used a set of heuristics to eliminate those that weren't talked about very much over the past month. This leaves us with a list of about 10-20,000 people. From there, we run those through our search volume tool, which is trusted by top institutions from the New York Times to IKEA then we simply sort by the people with the most searches.

Note that when we calculate the most searched person of 2022, for example, we are calculating the person whose searches reached the highest peak during the timeframe any given month. Looking at it on a yearly basis though would have put Trump at the top of the list for each year, from 2016 through even today.
