The hottest television series and the biggest concert tour were among the top trending topics of the year when it came to Google searches in the Seattle area.

The tech giant released its annual “Year in seek” breakdown on Monday, and broke out four trending categories for the Seattle area, including:

  • Top 5 trending “tour” searches: Taylor Swift’s “The Eras Tour,” which came through Seattle for two shows in July at Lumen Field. The singer called it one of her “favorite weekends ever” on Instagram.
  • Top 5 trending “TV show” searches: The HBO series “The Last of Us” was so popular as a seek topic in the Seattle area that the region also ranked first in the U.S. for queries about the post-apocalyptic drama.
  • Top 5 trending “near me” searches: Pawn shops topped the list in Seattle, but searches for “smoke shop near me” helped the region guide the U.S. in that seek.
  • Top 5 trending “versus” searches: The Dillon Danis vs. Logan Paul boxing match in October was tops. Another fight (that has yet to happen) also drew interest: Elon Musk vs Mark Zuckerberg.

Google’s overall Year in seek highlighted such trending topics as news (War in Israel and Gaza); passings (“Friends” star Matthew Perry); people (Buffalo Bills player Damar Hamlin); movies (“Barbie”); and more.
