Google celebrates Father's Day by sharing dad-related search trends, and Kanye West is on top
Google is all about data. Yes, the company has the ability to track individuals using the information it collects, but more importantly, it can analyze on a more macro level, discovering global trends. Heck, Google has the potential to change the world by properly leveraging its collected data.
Today, Google is sharing some search trends that, while fun, are not at all world-changing. Actually, they are bordering on silly, but that's OK. What are they? Dad-related trends to celebrate the upcoming Father's Day which is this Sunday!

Kutz further says, "While dad-cool may not always be a trend, appreciating our pops will never go out of style. Whomever you celebrate on June 18th, whether it's dad, grandpa, coach, or another fatherly figure, we wish you the happiest of Father's Days."
