The Google Zeitgeist 2011 has a list of the top ten search results by region. Luckily, my home city of Houston was included.
Or maybe not so luckily, actually.
Our search results are as follows:
- Houston Rodeo – an annual cowboy event
- Memorial Hermann – a hospital
- HCAD – the county appraisal district
- Houston Workforce Commission – unemployment office
- San Jacinto College – local junior college
- Klein ISD – school district in a northwest suburb
- Greensheet – classified ads
- Harris Country Jail – no clarification required
- Katy ISD – a school district in a western suburb
- HAR – an online site for Houston real estate
Johanna Wright, Google’s Director of Product Management, writes “Searches for school districts, universities and local libraries made the list in ten states . . . .”
I will let the readers draw their own conclusions from Houston’s list. May I just say that I grew up in Ohio?
Maybe I should move to Minneapolis. The county library made it to number 3 on their list.
