According to Google, Oklahoma City Was Obsessed with This Food in 2022
How many times throughout the year do you hop on Google and search "(something) near me?"
Odds are, if you're under 40, you do that quite often. If you're not under 40, you're technologically inclined. If you've never searched that, it's time you learn a new trick.
I shared this with our parents on vacation to
hell Orlando around Thanksgiving. The conversation went something like this...
"What do y'all want to eat tonight?"
and the search results would bring up the highest-rated seafood places across the whole wang of central Florida... but if you were to search "Seafood near me," it will provide the options closest and most convenient to you at that moment.
Brilliant. We had Landry's. The seafood eaters loved it, the steak people thought it was OK.
While Google usually posts up a "Year In Review" for the whole of the United States, they've broken it down to a hyper-local level, specifically the "near me" search trends for every metropolitan area of America.
Oklahoma City isn't as wild as you'd expect being the most populous great melting pot of the state, but there are some interesting things to be seen on that list.
