According to Google Trends, searches for ‘good news’ have reached all-time highs on Search. In fact, searches for good news have reached levels that are more than double that of any time since Google began publishing search data in 2004.

Good News: Google searches for are at an all-time high from r/SEO

Google Trends doesn’t give us any insight into the actual numbers, but it does provide a decent idea of how these searches are doing relative to history. Just a few months ago, searches for this particular term were as little as 25% of where they are today.

Search volume data from Ahrefs suggests that searches for “good news” were reaching average volumes of roughly 78,000 searches per month as of December 2019, so we can assume that the real numbers currently could be nearing more than half a million searches per month.

Here’s what that chart looks like for the month of March 2020. It looks eerily similar to the sudden spikes we’re seeing in other charts, but none perhaps can compare to the most recent US unemployment numbers.

Searches for “good news” areas of this writing being populated with the “Good News” subsections of various news outlets like MSN, Today, Huff Post, and Fox News. One site, in particular, seems primed to receive mass amounts of traffic because of this influx of searches: the Good News Network.

There are also a handful of random videos, including a music video by Mac Miller, some news out of Washington state as it fights COVID-19, and an update from the now-famous Dr. John Campbell who has some positive things to say.

In related news, The Office‘s John Krasinski recently launched a show called Some Good News on YouTube, which might be contributing to this recent spike. It’s more likely that Krasinski is benefiting from the trend, though.

Searches for coronavirus and all its related terms are certainly peaking as well, with ‘coronavirus’ itself seeing search volume go from literally 0 to 100 in the last couple of months.

Obviously, the world at large is going through a severely trying time at the moment with the spread of this novel coronavirus, and things are only expected to accelerate over the coming weeks. In the meantime, don’t forget your daily dose of uplifting stories!
