The top three most searched keywords used by Indonesian netizens this year, according to a recent report by Google, were "Batu akik" (popular slang for gem stones), '€œGo-jek'€ ojek (motorcycle taxi) booking app and "kue cubit" (small traditional pancakes).

Kue cubit was so popular that it also reached the top in the list of most trending recipes online, beating dishes such as "tongseng kambing" (goat stew) and "sate kambing" (goat satay).

"In contrast to last year's most popular searches, which had been dominated by occurrences, this year Indonesian people were searching more personal things as well as small and medium enterprise businesses such as 'kue cubit'," Google Indonesia communications head Putri Silalahi told thejakartapost.com on Wednesday.

"We call these trends micro moments, where netizens rely on their mobile phones to look for information that can ease their routines. We're very happy to be a part of it," added Google Indonesia country industry head Henky Prihatna.

Google Indonesia added three new categories to this year's annual Year in Search list, namely "Meme", "Mode & Kecantikan" (fashion and beauty) and "Bagaimana Cara..." (how to). It also revealed more personal and daily activities such as "Bagaimana Cara Bentuk Perut Six Pack Tanpa ke Gym" (how to get six-pack abs without going to the gym), which was the most searched term in July and "Bagaimana Cara agar Lebih Bahagia di Kantor" (how to be more happy at the office), which was most popular in October.
