A look at the most popular search terms on Bing this year, so far

Bing is the second most popular search engine on the web today (after Google of course), so naturally, it's interesting to see what keywords and phrases people are searching, for the most.

Ahrefs—a data-driven marketing platform—curates Bing's most searched for queries and updates them regularly in a blog post, giving us an interesting glimpse into what the world has been searching for most recently.

Ironically enough, the number one most searched term in Bing is its dominant rival — Google itself. Who would have thought people would be using a search engine to find another search engine?

And its search volume is no joke. At 46,220,000 searches per month, it's more than 12,000,000 ahead of the one in second place.
