Jeez, California, do you have to be so, well, Californian?
While not as bad as some of the top Google search terms for New Mexico (UFOs), Texas (“Do I Have Herpes?”) and Pennsylvania (“Back Shaving”), California's most frequent searches appear to paint us as the stereotypical West Coasters others think we are.
The real estate website Estately this week crunched some Google Trends data and figured out the 11 top search terms in California:
Alcoholics Anonymous / Bros Before Hos / Dandruff Cure / Food Poisoning / Google Glass / Kim Kardashian / Meat is Murder / Paris Hilton / Pokemon / Rogaine / What does Siri look like?
Really, California? What does Siri look like? Bros Before Hos? Dandruff Care? Oy vey.
Maybe we need to rethink our contention that what others believe about Southern California isn't true. This i some shallow business.
Estately has this to say about the results:
The results ranged from mildly amusing to completely disturbing. No doubt this information will come in handy for anyone trying to decide which state they want to buy a home in, especially for those curious how their potential neighbors spend their time online.
And, of California, the site says we have “a variety pack of issues.” For sure; vanity being chief among them.
