New Study: Idaho is the Top State for Bigfoot Searches (on Google)

Idaho tops U.S. for Google Bigfoot Searches (click picture to enlarge)
Among search terms like unicorns, caramel corn and potatoes, Idaho searches for Bigfoot on Google more so than any other state. Using a tool called Google Trends, Estately was able to determine the top term for every state. Although it is a little surprising Bigfoot did not score higher further west, we are happy he made it on the list at all. Read how Estatley did it below.
America’s fifty states have a lot in common, but if their internet search histories are any indication they also have significant differences. Estately ran hundreds of search queries through Google Trends to determine which words, terms, and questions each state was searching for more than any other. The results ranged from mildly amusing to completely disturbing. No doubt this information will come in handy for anyone trying to decide which state they want to buy a home in, especially for those curious how their potential neighbors spend their time online. The results on the map above are just the tip of the online search iceberg.

Charlotte, North Carolina Bigfoot Goes Viral

Bigfoot made it on Google's Top Ten search terms today. This has not happened since 2008 during the Geogia Bigfoot Hoax. What has everybody searching for Bigfoot on Google? Most likely the new North Carolina's Knobby video we reported yesterday.

It didn't hurt that MSNBC reported the Bigfoot story in its Tech and Science Section.

Not all are pleased with MSNBC's categorization of Bigfoot. Another NBC Affiliate in the Bay Area takes time to complain.

World's Worst Camera Captures Bigfoot
An incredibly fuzzy video of Bigfoot emerges. Fuzzy video? In 2011?

MSNBC is breathlessly reporting -- in its "science" section no less -- the emergence of a new Bigfoot video, shot by a fellow in North Carolina.

"Knobby," as the photographer nicknames him, walks across the road right in front of the camera. He contacted his local NBC TV station, "NewsChannel 36."

He also posted the video to YouTube, writing, "Carolyn stopped the truck and I jumped from the truck with a small video camera and started shooting a video of the Big Foot as it ran across the road in front of the truck."

What we wonder is how in 2011 someone, even someone in North Carolina, is using what appears to be a video camera designed by Galileo Galilei. The video is fuzzy and jerky and incredibly, saved as a .avi file. Even the camera on the iPad2 is better than that.

While the video is fuzzy, apparently Bigfoot's Knobby's smell is very distinct.
Says the man: "If you could have been there on that road and saw it live and smelled its horrid smell you would know that it had to be real. I know it brought cold chills to me when it looked just for a second at me and snarled or growled before it ran on up into the woods."

If our inbox is any indication most Bigfooters are not convinced either. However, if you find the search trends of Bigfoot interesting, than visit the links below under the heading YOU MAY ALSO LIKE. One of them has interactive doodads! Just like the one below.

Seraching for Bigfoot Online

Its always interesting to see search trends for Bigfoot. before in the past we have introduced you to the comparisons of search terms such as Bigfoot, Sasquatch, and Yeti.

This last month we have noted a declining trend of the search for Bigfoot. The biggest spike we had seen was actually August of last year when the Georgia Hoax erupted. As seen on the graph below.
