Bay vs. Lake vs. Sea vs. Ocean vs. Gulf

This time I faced off the five largest kinds of bodies of water.

You might have thought that Google-popularity would be linked to size and expected to see ocean or sea on top but it is bay that overall is the "winner." Maybe that has something to do with the existence of a lot of place names (and their derivatives) that contain "Bay"? Note that lake is very seasonal: everybody goes to the lake in the summer, I guess?
