World’s Most Googled Products

google mapIn popular culture, certain countries are stereotypically associated with certain products ? beer in Germany, carpets in Turkey, electronics in Japan.?

But those things aren’t what people are really searching for.?

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

While the results are far from scientific ? 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 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
