Top Google Searches By State

If you've ever wondered who's searching what on Google, Estately has your answer.

The real estate service released a state-by-state guide of top Google searches, and the results are interesting, to say the least.


In a blog on Estately's official site, Ryan Nickum explained the methodology behind the research,

Here at Estately, we were determined to find out which how-to questions internet users in each state asked more frequently than others. What we uncovered was both surpristing and extremely predictable. Using Google Autocomplete, we compiled hundreds of the most common how-to questions Americans type into the Google search bar. We then ran those searches through Google Trends to determine which state queried each of these selected searches the most over the past 5 years.

Now, I definitely have some questions to ask.

First, what the hell is up with people in Delaware? Why are they so interested in killing people? I mean, I know there's nothing to do down there but damn.


Also, California, "how to spot a narcissist"? Really?

Look to your left. Now, look to the right. There you go.

Elsewhere, there are some real golden results to behold. Curious Arizonans apparently want to be in the Illuminati (... OK), Texans want to sell their souls and New York women appear to have grown tired of finance bros explaining how the world works.

But, Florida? Floridians are the ones crying out for help.

And that would be really funny if Florida wasn't in, like, prime position to be hit by a Hurricane every year.

There are also some truly funny ones. Of course, people in Colorado would be trying to figure out how to grow weed and people in Kentucky need help with talking dirty -- you know, southern manners and all.

In conclusion, though, I only have one thing to say: Shout out to Pennsylvania. I hope you find an answer.
