Can you tell a lot by a state by looking at the most frequent Google searches that originate there?
Who knows, but it’s fun to look at!
Real estate website Estately, “ran hundreds of search queries through Google Trends to determine which words, terms, and questions each state was searching for more than any other. The results ranged from mildly amusing to completely disturbing.”
Here’s what Estately found:
TENNESSEE: Elvis Presley
Analysis: Elvis left this earthly realm 37 years ago, but don’t tell that to Tennessee.
MISSISSIPPI: Candy Crush / Codeine / Dog Fighting / Lose Weight / Making Crack / Tupac Is Alive / Twerking / What is Instagram?
Analysis: What happens in Mississippi stays in Mississippi, and it’s definitely for the best that Mississippi doesn’t know how to post photos of it on Instagram.
ARKANSAS: Atkins Diet / End of Days / Lap Band Surgery / Learn to Read / Walmart Jobs
Analysis: In 2013, Arkansas was declared the most obese state in America, and evidently they did something about it because in 2014 they’re now the second most obese.
