Year 2015 is truly the year of Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza as they dominated this year with multiple product endorsements, sold out magazine covers, top rating shows, platinum record album, back-to-back awards and upcoming blockbuster movie.
With their current achievements, it is not surprising that they topped the annual list of Google’s top trending searches in the Philippines. The list revealed the various moments that Pinoys laughed, cried, and gushed about in 2015, as reflected by their search activities on Google.
The term “AlDub” (Alden and Yaya Dub) emerged as the overall top trending search in the Philippines, followed by Pope Francis, Maine Mendoza, FIBA Asia 2015, and Alden Richards. Romantic film “Fifty Shades of Grey,” the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) summit, Paris attacks, and the Commission on Elections also made it to the overall top 10.
Maine was also the most-searched female personality and Alden Richards was second to Pope Francis in the most-searched male personality category of the said search engine. “God Gave Me You” which became the theme song of AlDub also made it to the Top 10 of most searched song lyrics. Eat Bulaga was in number 3 in the top trending shows.
In the “Top Trending Who is” list for 2015, the name Maine Mendoza was in number three and Yaya Dub at number seven. While Eat Bulaga child star Bae-by Baste occupied the number two spot.
