The only thing faster than the development of technology itself is the number of tech brands popping up.
From iPhones to Chromebook’s and everything else in between, technology has become a fundamental pillar in our day to day life.
We use it for everything and so it does beg us to ask the question – which tech brands are searched for the most in the UK?
What are the most searched for tech brands terms in the UK?
Experts, Opening Times have carried out research to deep dive into the most searched for tech brands in the UK. The data is based on a recent YouGov survey on which tech brands people most want to search for online.
Popularity aside, Opening Times decided to take the brands/products featured in the survey and see which of them people are most searching for on Google using search data from SEMRush.
The data provided from SEMRush is perhaps a good example of inaccurate SEO tools are. Currys have three times the search volume as Apple. You could argue that this shows user intent, people probably search for Currys with a plan to buy whereas most people don’t search just for the term Apple.
However, I’d also argue that there are inaccuracies further down the list. Apple iPhone, Google Home, Lenovo and Logitech all have the same search volume. I do not believe for one second that the same number of people searching for an Apple iPhone also search for Lenovo.
However, here are the top 9 searched for tech brands/products in the UK based on SEMRush.
