The Google's Philippine election page, which was launched on March 9, will serve as tool for journalists and the media to find top queries, topics and most-searched presidential and vice presidential candidates running in the elections.

The search engine company clarified that Google Trends is not a substitute for polling data or survey.

"It merely reflects people’s search interest about particular topics at a local level over a period of time. A spike in a particular search query does not reflect that a candidate is somehow “popular” or “winning”," Google said.

As of March 11, Robredo topped Google Search with 46%, followed by another presidential candidate and former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos with 26%.

Senator Manny Pacquiao and Manila Mayor Isko Moreno account for 12% and 11% of the search queries, respectively, followed by Senator Panfilo Lacson with 5%.

Senate President Vicente Sotto III ranked third at 14%, followed by former lawmaker Walden Bello with 7%, and former Manila Mayor Lito Atienza with 3%.
