A quick search of Google’s top trends for 2021 sees the metro Atlanta area pop up. A lot.
Like many parts of the country, Google Trends analyst Charlotte Smith told Channel 2 Anchor Linda Stouffer, that two things stood out from other searched terms. Yes, they were both COVID-19 related. One was masking up, the other was staying safe.
“Some of our spiking searches were COVID vaccine or near COVID testing near me,” said Smith.
Politics and voting also ranked high on the list. Georgia’s Senate races at the beginning of the past year held the nation’s attention as well.
“One of the overall spiked searches for all of 2021 was actually the Georgia Senate race,” Smith said.
TRENDING STORIES:
Local sports were an extremely popular search target. The Braves made it to the playoffs and won the World Series, while the Atlanta Hawks made their most successful playoff run in years. Both teams landed in the top ten list of sports trends this past year.
“A number one trending search overall was the NBA,” Smith said. “The Atlanta Hawks, of course, were like, definitely on our list of top searches for NBA teams.”
Of course during the summer, topics related to getting back out in public were popular searches.
“Movies near me, bowling near me, brunch near me…,” Smith said.
“Everyone believes Atlanta stays up with the trends so people try to stay up with Atlanta,” said Atlanta resident Jamison Janousek.

Atlanta resident Jemario Clayton told Stouffer that it is all of these things that remind him how much he loves living in the area.
“The favorite thing for me is being able to take care of my family, to have the opportunity to take care of my family and raise my kids,” Clayton said. “You can never be bored in Atlanta, so I love that.”
