It’s that time of year!
Earlier today, Google released its 2017 Year in Search results. In addition to the global and national trends — covering topics like overall searches, people, global news, consumer tech, movies, how-to’s and more.
So, what did Atlantans search for in 2017?
Hurricane Irma (No. 1 globally, No. 1 in U.S.)
Tom Petty (No. 7 globally, No. 3 in U.S.)
Super Bowl (No. 4 in U.S.)
Aaron Hernandez (No. 9 in U.S.)
Solar eclipse (No. 7 in U.S.)
Las Vegas shooting (No. 5 in U.S.)
Fidget spinner (No. 8 globally, No. 10 in U.S.)
Perhaps surprising — given the number of local elections and issues in 2017 — Atlanta’s top search results focused primarily on regional and national topics and matched closely with the national trends.
Compared to the rest of the country, Atlanta wasn’t as interested in Matt Lauer (No. 2 U.S.), the fight between Mayweather vs. McGregor (No. 6 U.S.) or Hurricane Harvey (No. 8 U.S.).
