You can learn a lot about a country based on what its population Googles and what New Zealanders search for online is eye-opening. In Northland the most popular searches are killing and lawyer.

Recently VICE offices around the world have been using the Godlike, all-seeing power of Google Trends to unearth some awkward truths about our own internet habits.

By cross referencing embarrassing search terms against different population centres, we learned of South Australia’s strange fascination with pregnancy porn, saw that people from London love dad rock, realised Nova Scotia has herpes, and discovered Drenthe doesn’t know what Facebook is.

This time we turn our attention to New Zealand and the creepy nonsense its denizens are trying to research/jerk off too.

We made up a list of phrases like Ford Escort, fracking, bundt cake, and Simply Red to see who was Googling what, most. Here are the inflammatory results.

To see the most popular searches in Auckland, Wellington, Bay of Plenty, Canterbury, Southland, Waikato, Northland, Otago and Taranaki see the post by Vice’s Ben Thomson here.
