From how to hide a dead body to Lady Gaga trivia, Australian-based search agency Search Factory took it upon themselves to seek out “the crazy s**t people search for on Google.”

According to the company, they used the search engine’s keyword planner tool to calculate a number of worldwide monthly averages for the best of Google’s “crazy and weird” search terms – and this is what they found:

 

  • “How to hide a dead body:” 1,000 average monthly searches

  • “Cat dating:”  110 average monthly searches
  • “How to make my cat love me:” 390 average monthly searches
