How does Top Charts work?

Top Charts relies on technology from the Knowledge Graph to identify when searches seem to be about specific people, places, and things. Top Charts builds on our efforts to help you find the information you're really looking for.

How accurate are Top Charts rankings?

Top Charts relies on the best technology at Google to share interest in real-world people, places, and things. We've reported these trends since 2004 with the annual Year in Search, but ultimately it's impossible to know the true intention behind a search query without asking users directly.
