Ebola, celebrity deaths tops for 2014 web searches in GA

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - The Ebola virus and celebrities who died this year dominated search trends in Georgia.

That's according to a report from Google released Tuesday. The search engine reports that "Ebola" was fifth trending search term. It also appeared in lists for news and event searches and top ten definitions in 2014.

Robin Williams, Joan Rivers, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Maya Angelou also made appearances on the top 10 trending search list.

Georgia is home to the Centers for Disease Control, which continues to play a role in fighting the virus in some west African countries and to Emory University. The first two Americans to be flown home for treatment came to the Emory campus in Atlanta.
