Just like earlier, today, in our popular culture, most countries are stereotypically associated with certain products or services. Probably you also would think of Germany regarding beer or Mercedes, carpets of Turkey, electronics of Japan, or pizza of Italy.
But those things aren’t always what people search for on the internet using the most known search engine.
Fixr.com created a map of the world with the most Googled for an object in each country, using the autocomplete of Google with the following formula: How much does * cost in [x country].
We can’t say that these results are scientifically proven because Google autocompletes results mainly vary based on the searcher’s history and the time of the search. The place of search, etc. – they do say something about how countries are perceived in our minds.
Some of the fascinating (and often shameful) results are shown on the maps below:
