Amphipolis most searched word by Greeks on Google

The uncovering of the Alexander the Great-era tomb at Amphipolis in northern Greece is the subject that most intrigued Greek web users, according to statistics made public on Tuesday by Google.

According to the search engine, Amphipolis was the most searched word on Greek Google this year.

Elections featured heavily in the top 10, with three references: “Elections 2014,” “Where do I vote” and “Interior Ministry” – the latter being the government department that publishes details of polling stations and results.

State broadcaster NERIT was the third most popular search, followed by this year’s edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. The 2014 World Cup and the iPhone 6 also made it into the top 10.
