I find it very interesting that New Jersey's number one searched brand is mayonaisse.

I would have thought that it would have been one of the many gas station brands for instructions on how to pump you own gas. smirk

Somewhere in the middle
I think it isn't about what each state searches, but what from each state is searched the most. So, if I live in Iowa, but am searching for tires, and search Good Year. That counts as an Ohio search.

That makes sense because to Patsgirl's point, why would we in MA search Sam Adams, it's made here and we know that. So perhaps those from out of state search for this beer.

Think about job searches. Maybe people in Mass are searching for Sam Adams jobs or people in Cali are searching for Yahoo jobs.

Still doesn't explain Skyy Vodka in Ok.

this is what the people in each state searched...the last paragraph in the article clarifies that point...so i would agree that job searching probably accounts for a large portion...

These are the top brands by state, according to Google trends keyword search popularity.

The data, compiled by Direct Capital, was collected from a testing base of more than 200 brands. Technology companies are the most popular category, found in nine states, followed by liquor, found in eight.

A number of companies are the top search term in their home states, such as Yahoo in California, Target in Minnesota, Home Depot in Georgia, Wal-Mart in Arkansas, Ford in Michigan, and McDonald’s in Illinois.
