Here’s what people want to buy according to their most popular searches.Americans only eat fast food, Germans love beer, and everyone in Australia surfs.
Think you know what your country’s stereotype is? Guess again. Earlier this year the cost-estimating site Fixr created a map that shows the most Googled products in every country.
To get their data, the team at Fixr googled a simple question for each country: “how much does * cost”. Then they used Google’s autocomplete tool to see the most searched phrase. While Fixr’s experiment is far from being scientific, it’s certainly interesting to see what specific countries care about.
Nearly every country in Africa is concerned about basic life necessities except for Mauritania and Sierra Leone. The most searched for product are diamonds Sierra Leone, and slaves in Mauritania.

A few interesting findings:
  • People in Europe are very practical and are concerned about the cost of beer, living, and studying.
  • In Africa, people most searched for basic necessities: livestock, food, and fuel.
  • Brazilians like to get down. Their most searched product was “prostitutes.”
  • “How much does it cost to fly a MiG” was the most commonly searched term in Russia. I’m not surprised.
  • Kuwait is quite curious about the cost of a Lamborghini.
