How-To Questions States Like Colorado Google More Than Other States

What we Google says a lot about us — and about where we live.

That's the thesis (to use a particularly highfalutin term) at the heart of an Estately post headlined "How-To Questions Each State Googles More Frequently Than Any Other State."

The site used Google Autocomplete to compile hundreds of common how-to questions, then ran them through Google Trends to come up with the searches queried by each state (and the District of Columbia) more frequently than other states over the past five years — and the results for plenty of places, including Colorado, are as telling as they are hilarious.

Below, see the top picks for each state, photo-illustrated for your pleasure. (There are additional queries for most states in the original Estately post.) No need to search for them. They're all right here.
