Our Google search tells various things about our personalities and above all it is also based on the most significant factor “social relevance.” For example, if we want to know about best electronic devices, Google will tell you about Japan and for best pizza outlets, Italy is famous in the world. But according to cost-estimating website Fixr.com, those things aren’t what people are actually searching for.
The website put together a map of the world with the most-Googled-for object in each country, using the autocomplete formula of “How much does * cost in [x country].”
Although the results are not scientific as Google autocomplete results vary based on the searcher’s history, time of search and place of search; they do provide an understanding about how countries are perceived.
Some Fascinating Results:
Following are some of the interesting country-wise results found after the survey:
- Pakistan: People want to know how much weddings costs.
- India: People want to know how much cows cost.
- China: People want to know how much electronics cost.
