In fact, one of the queries most associated with "Evil Eye" is "Evil Eye Bracelet", because of the belief that a talisman could avoid every trouble.

The classification of the countries where the search is prevalent puts in the first place Australia, followed by UAE, US, Canada and at the fifth place the UK.

Spiritism and Jinn

Other inquiries related to the world of the occult are more unpredictable. The word "Spiritism" registered a spike in searches in the last days of May 2015, because of the diffusion of the so-called "Charlie Charlie Challenge", a game with pencil and paper supposed to evoke some spirits.

In the Islamic religion, the spirits are called "Jinn", and this word is very typed in the last five years. It registered a spike in 2014-2015, in the period of the commercialization of a movie titled "Jinn", speaking of spirits.

However, also after the promotion of the film, the word was still typed. In fact, according to Islamic tradition, the Jinn could be called to improve all the situation of our lives. So, not only Muslim countries look for it on the internet. In the last year, after Pakistan, the United Kingdom is the second country in the classification of nations searching this word. The cities more interested are (in order): Edinburgh, Manchester, Birmingham, London, and Leeds.
