No longer bound by the constraints of the TV schedule, streaming services are constantly adding content and audiences are lapping it up. What makes this list particularly interesting is Netflix and co. are loathe to publish official viewing figures, so getting a sense of what Yahoo users most wanted to know about this year is one of the best indicators of which are the most successful.
The Yahoo Year in Review Methodology
To develop the Yahoo Year in Review, our editors analyse Yahoo Search queries based on a number of factors, including absolute volume and growth from previous periods, to see which themes and trends bubble to the surface. Individuals and their Search queries always remain anonymous. This list is constructed without navigational searches – i.e. searches where the intention is clearly purely to navigate to a site rather than to discover information.
