Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, December 7) — The May 9 national elections clearly dominated the online space this year with "Halalan 2022" topping Google's most searched topic.

"Filipinos searched for information regarding the 2022 national elections from how to find their precincts, voting resources, and results," said Google, as it released its Year in Search 2022 report on Wednesday.

Aside from being the overall top trending search for Filipinos this year, "Halalan 2022" was also the most searched news item.

Also on the top 10 trending searches is "precinct finder" at number three, while "VaxCertPH" ranked second.

"Last year, the term landed fourth in the list. In 2022, as the world accelerates into a post-pandemic era, VaxCertPH moved up two places to occupy the second spot," Google said.

Korean zombie flick "All of Us Are Dead" leads the most searched television series or drama for this year.

Basketball star Ricci Rivero and Hollywood star Amber Heard made it as top male and female personalities.

"Encanto" is the most searched movie, while one of its songs "We Don't Talk About Bruno" is the most searched lyrics for 2022.
