    Where are all the Vikings fans...

    Apparently we are in North Dakota!

    I did a Google Trends search to see where the most Google searches for Minnesota Vikings came from.

    The number 1 state?
    North Dakota!
    The number 1 city?
    Fargo!
    Whoo hoo!
    Way to go my purple brethren!

    In fact North Dakota and South Dakota both ranked higher than Minnesota!

    http://www.google.com/trends?q=Minnesota+Vikings&ctab=0&geo=US&geor=all& date=all&sort=0

    (BTW, the highest ever search rate since they started tracking in 2004 was in the third quarter of 2005... the love boat >)

    Have you been bribing all your fellow Fargoians with free Jello shots again?

    I can't believe a certain town in Southeastern VA didn't make the list.
    I guess I need to google faster/more.
    ;D

    Nice graphs with no legend, supporting data shown or ideology clearly explained.

    You also erred by not putting "Minnesota Vikings" in quotes.

    South Dakota is shown as tops now.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Re: Where are all the Vikings fans...

    nice post, good research with fun facts.

    Maybe we should do a poll to see where everybody's from...

    Yes, but Fargo is still number 1.
    Besides, that is a restrictive way to search anyway...

    As far as the graph, don't blame me, it is a Google comparative tool.
    Usually what we do in the marketing world is present two different searches and offer a visual comparison of them.
    Here is a comparison of Minnesota Twins vs Minnesota Vikings

    Re: Where are all the Vikings fans...

    Funny... If you just search 'Vikings', Minnesota tops the list along with many MN cities.
    I think us Minnesotans don't think of them as the Minnesota Vikings, but rather just as The Vikings.
