    The methodology was simple; I used my keyword research tool, Market Samurai and searched on each city name separately. Each search would come up with over 700 results. I then selected phrases that indicated a search for a local service or company. I then tabulated the results. These are searches that are paired with the city name.
    What are the major shifts since I did this over 2 years ago?
    • The sheer numbers of daily searches are much higher.
    • Hotels still top the list, but everything else shifted toward everyday life type of searches.
    • People still searched most often did a simple search using the keyword + the city (geo modifier) or the city + the keyword.
    • There was a noticeable increase in people using “in” as part of the search phrase: apartments in phoenix or restaurants in denver.
