This is what Nevada searched for on Google the most in 2015

Between IKEA building its first Nevada location, preparing for the 2016 presidential election, the end of the Strip’s longest-running production Jubilee! and Uber getting up and running, there have been plenty of topics running through the minds of Nevadans through the year.

With 2015 coming to a close, real estate blog Estately ran hundreds of terms through Google Trends to see what topics residents in each state Googled more frequently than any other state. (Of course, this isn’t the most scientific measure of what Nevadans were interested in all year, but it’s fun to consider.)

Quite different from what Nevada historically Googled, according to their findings, Nevadans searched for basketball player Lamar Odom more than any other state in 2015.

Odom, who is the ex-husband of reality star Khloé Kardashian, made headlines in mid-October when he was found unconscious at Dennis Hof’s Bunny Ranch near Pahrump, Nevada.

Besides Odom, Nevada had 10 other terms — all entertainment related — that were searched more in the Silver State than anywhere else.

Searching for the professional boxer and Las Vegas native Floyd Mayweather, as well as the the founder of a new Las Vegas charter school, Pitbull, is understandable.

Searching for what we can only assume is the Rock’s “San Andreas” might seem a little odd. Perhaps it’s because the movie shows Hoover Dam collapsing in the wake of an earthquake. (Officials told the Review-Journal the concept is pure fiction.)

Californians searched for the Volkswagen scandal the most, where as “transgender” was among Utah’s most popularly-searched terms. In Arizona, the Second Amendment led the Google search.

Nevada wasn’t the only state which favored an entertainment topic.

Leonard Nimoy emerged as Oregon’s most searched, Miranda Lambert’s divorce led Texas, Caitlyn Jenner dominated Oklahoma and “Magic Mike XXL” surpassed all other topics in West Virginia.
