Top 2016 Google Searches By State

We all Google whatever random thought pops into our heads . . . and we don’t seem to really care that Google is keeping records of ALL of that. The real estate website just finished a study that figured out what people in every state Googled more than anyone else.  Here are some of the highlights . . .

1.  Dead celebrities got a lot of attention.  Minnesota’s top search was Prince . . . Indiana’s was Florence Henderson . . . Kentucky’s was Muhammad Ali . . . Vermont’s was David Bowie . . . and Wyoming’s was Gene Wilder…Pennsylvania’s was ARNOLD PALMER (Senseless Survey Answer!!!!!)

2.  And in Tennessee, the top search was “Mr. T. dead.”  He’s not.  Apparently they were just double-checking?

3.  The election led to lots of searches as well.  New Jersey Googled Donald Trump more than anyone else . . . Idaho’s top search was “How did Trump win?” . . . and Alaska’s biggest search was the Pizzagate conspiracy theory.

4.  The top search in Ohio was “3-1 lead” . . . because the Cavs came back from a 3-to-1 deficit in the NBA Finals in June, and the Indians lost a 3-to-1 lead in the World Series in November.

5.  And California summed it all up by searching for “2016 worst year ever?” more than any other state.
