While browsing through Twitter I stumbled across a tweet of Vishal Gondal — founder of fitness band Goqii and NCore Games — the developers behind FAU-G. In the tweet, he shared a screenshot of his search suggestions on Google Search.

The search query started from ‘how to’ and one of the first suggestions on the list was ‘how to make oxygen’ followed by the next suggestion ‘how to make oxygen cylinder’.
This made me curious to take a look at the search trend that led to these results. For this, I headed to Google Trends and looked at the trends from a week ago and from a month ago, and safe to say, the results were definitely surprising.
