Google Dad Map

In honor of Father’s Day, Estately Real Estate Search set out to map the dad-related things people in each state Google more frequently than people in other states. To do this we ran hundreds of search queries through Google Trends, including fictional dads from movies and TV shows, brands associated with dads, stereotypical dad interests and issues, and a variety of other dad-related things.

To be clear, the list below does not represent what each state Googles the most, it simply shows the dad-related searches each state Googles more frequently than the other 49 states and the District of Columbia.
