In April 2015, as part of their mission to find out what people around the world are really curious about virtually, Fixr.com, a cost estimating website constructed a formula to investigate what people were were really searching, especially in relation to each country in the world. As part of their research, they used the autocomplete formula “How much does * cost [x country] into Google search engine. As such, Google autocomplete results were predominantly based on the time of the search, searcher’s history and the location of the search.
As it was revealed, when it came to the United States, people were highly curious about patents, and more specifically, how much does it cost to obtain a patent in the United States.
Other notable searches for each nation that people were googling the most about were:
How much a camel costs in Egypt
How much a BMW costs in Germany
How much a watermelon costs in Japan
How much a coke costs in Taiwan
