The most Googled products in every country in one crazy map


In popular culture, certain countries are stereotypically associated with certain products — carpets in Turkey, electronics in Japan. See what Pakistan searches most.

Earlier this month, the cost-estimating website Fixr.com 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].”

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 want to know how much a flight in a MIG aircraft costs in Russia.

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

• People want to know how much rhinoplasty costs in South Korea.
