What Each State Googled In 2015… Mississippi Might Have Some Explaining To Do.

Every state in the country has different interests and concerns. Although we still have a couple weeks left in 2015, Estately has published what Americans spent the most time googling broken up by state. The differences were as diverse and funny as you would expect.

Arkansas and Illinois seemed interested in the blood moon prophecy, a theory focusing on the end of the world. Georgia might not be pleased that the rest of the country will know that they inquired what whip dance was the most or that the people of Wisconsin had no idea what the term bae means. Just in case bae, is an acronym that stands for “before anyone else.”

Take a look at the long list of the top searches. Now you know what your friends are searching for when you catch them on their laptop at your local coffee shop. Do your searches match the same as your estate?
