Too Popular

Some searchers in India are noticing that when you enter a query into Google that has no matches and Google has no idea what you are looking for, Google will show you a section called "some popular queries."

Google Some Popular Queries Mobile

I tried to replicate this from my device in New York but no luck.

I guess this is a way to salvage the search and get the searcher to try to search for anything else, anything at all? Of course, maybe these queries are so popular in India that they drive some nice CPCs on Google Ads?
