Interested in knowing the most ‘health conscious locations in Ireland’?
So were we.
So we went to Google Trends and put in a search for the topic ‘Health’ over a 5 year period (from Jan 2016 to Jan 2021). As the results varied ever so slightly from day to day – we decided to get an average over a 31 day period – so to have the most accurate reading possible. And digging through the sum of that data – we calculated the top locations where health is searched the most.
So without further ado…
Here are the most Health conscious places in Ireland (or at the very least; where the topic health is searched the most as an overall percentage of searches)
