How We Generated This List

To find these questions we first sorted through a list of over 4 billion search terms. 

Specifically, we searched for keywords containing a question, like "where" and "how"). We then manually curated the list to remove duplicate questions (ie. the same question phrased slightly differently). 

Finally, we looked up the search volume for each term using third party SEO software. And ranked the questions based on which terms generate the most monthly searches in Google.
