Google Insights for Canucks Fans

I love random stats and tidbits of information which is why I’m currently addicted to Google’s Insights for Search feature.

Basically you can pop in a search term and see trends such as which cities or countries search what term the most, where people are located, what are some top searched words, and various other statistics.

I just received an email from Google letting me know some of the top Canucks trends, and I thought these were definitely worth noting:

Biggest Googling Canucks fans in BC…

  1. Delta
  2. Langley
  3. Coquitlam
  4. North Vancouver
  5. Williams Lake
  6. Surrey
  7. Vancouver
  8. Kamloops
  9. Courtenay
  10. Kelowna

What Canucks fans are searching for:

  • Canucks schedule
  • Canucks tickets
  • Mats Sundin
  • Playoff schedule
  • Canucks streaming
  • Canucks live
  • Canucks news
  • TSN
  • Round Two, Game One, Canucks Tweetup

    Round Two, Game One, Canucks Tweetup

    You can also text Google to get scores on the fly using their sms search service by texting the words “canucks score” to 466453. The result is a message in return that may look like this:

    Vancouver Canucks (45-27-10)
    Last game: 30 Apr, Vancouver Canucks 5 – Chicago Blackhawks 3
    Next game: vs. Chicago Blackhawks, 2 May 10:00pm ET

    Round Two, Game One, Canucks Tweetup

    It’s pretty evident that Canucks fans are connected, which you can even tell on game day when the term #Canucks is one of the top ten in the world on Twitter. I’m really liking the text feature and I think the search data may be valuable information for hockey bloggers and content creators.

    Finally, according to Google, Canadians search for “hockey” more than any other country in the world, they search “NHL” more than anyone else and in BC, “hockey” is more popular than “Britney Spears”… as it should be in my books.

      You’d think Vancouver would be in the top 3 spots not 7th.
