Laptop is most Googled in Ghana plus most Googled product in every country


In popular culture, certain countries are stereotypically associated with certain products — beer in Germany, carpets in Turkey, electronics in Japan.

But those things aren’t what people are really searching for.

Earlier this month, the cost-estimating 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].”

While the results are far from scientific — since Google autocomplete results vary based on the searcher’s history, the time of search, and the place of search — they do say at least a little bit about how countries are perceived.

Some of the fascinating (and troubling) results:

• People in Ghana Googled how much a laptop cost the most.

• People want to know how much a prostitute costs in Brazil

• Whilst in Nigeria how much weddings costs was the most Googled.
