Google Trends (www.google.com/trends) is a nifty online tool where you can search how common search words or phrases. You can also see how the trends fluctuate throughout the year, where the Google search terms are most popular and much more.
One day I got a little bored, and this is what I discovered on Google Trends. Here are 10 Google Trends Examples.
Random Thing I learned from Google Trends #1: Tampa, FL is the number one spot for the search phrase “Get Plastic Surgery“. I figured it would be California? It is significantly above the second location, San Diego. The third is Atlanta and the fourth is Phoenix.
Random Thing I learned from Google Trends #2: “Obama” was a significantly more popular Google search term than “McCain“, however “Palin” as alot more common that “Biden.“
Random Thing I learned from Google Trends #3: The location with the most “Pass a Drug Test” and “How to Pass a Drug Test” searches is Louisville, KY. I have no idea why Louisville would be the number one spot. Some of the other popular ones are Tampa, Orlando, and Richardson, TX.
Random Thing I learned from Google Trends #4: Dallas, TX and Atlanta, GA are the two top locations for the phrase “Marriage Counseling.” Does that mean that residents of the south are more likely to work on their marriages? St. Paul, MN is the top spot for the google search “Divorce Attorney“. It is significantly higher than the second spot, which happens to (ironically) be Dallas, TX. Atlanta is the third as well. If you want to have a happy marriage should you avoid these spots?
Random Thing I learned from Google Trends #5: The residents of Oakland, NJ must enjoy playing April Fools Jokes because they are the top location (by a very signifcant amount, check it to see) for “April Fools Jokes” and “April Fools“. Salt Lake City and Minneapolis are the next in line.
Random Thing I learned from Google Trends #6: Every year since Google trends has been around, the search term “Potty Training” jumps up significantly at the first of January. I guess some parents have a New Year’s resolution to potty train their child? Salt Lake City, Utah is the top location for the search, by the way.
Random Thing I learned from Google Trends #7: Delhi, India and Mumbai, India are the top locations for the search “Infertility“. I’m wondering if it has to do with this article?
Random Thing I learned from Google Trends #8: Houston, TX is the top search for the google search word “Jail Bail“.and “Bail Bond“. The next two are Richardson, TX and Houston, TX.
Random Thing I learned from Google Trends #9: Austiin, TX is top American city for “Lice Treatment” searches. Two that come before it are Melbourne, Austria and Brisbane, Australia.
Random Thing I learned from Google Trends #10: Perhaps Pleasanton, CA seniors are serious about their college future. It is the top location for the search “SAT Study Guide.” Newark, NJ is the top place for “SAT Study.”
