What Is Maine’s Most Embarrassing Google Search?
You'd think Mainahs would be searching things like, "Why is my truck all stove up?" or "Where do you buy Allen's Coffee Brandy?" Unfortunately, Maine's most embarrassing Google search is far worse.
Real estate search site Estately dug through 11 years of Google search data to see which terms users in each state Googled more than any other. These terms were deemed the most embarrassing of all the searches in Maine. Our most embarrassing search is so bad even Estately's article said Canada can have us!
According to the data collected, Maine's most embarrassing searches are for Nickelback lyrics! Apparently there were quite a few people wanting to learn the lyrics so they could sing along when the band came to town... which never happened. The band was supposed to visit Maine this summer but due to a health issue with the vocalist, the show was canceled.
The second most embarrassing search was for the band Good Charlotte. Remember them?! That band was popular in the late '90s into the early 2000s, so why is Maine still searching them?! Maybe because we feel the same way as G.C. about the lifestyles of the rich and famous?
To be honest, I am not exactly sure why this one is so embarrassing but the third most embarrassing search for Maine was for Disc Golf -- a new sport that has quickly gained popularity nationwide with new disc golf courses popping up every day. Maine does have a few locations to go play, however they are not in every region yet which may be a reason it is so often searched. Still, we are not sure why that is so embarrassing.
