Unheeded and Probably Quieter Places to Visit
From the highlights Columbus Direct examined, Google’s keyword planner is equally interesting for travelers, but Google searching for the Tokyo Tower in Japan, Brandenburg Gate and the Cologne Cathedral in Germany is less weekly, so that the number of tourists is not that large.
The most famous landmarks in the world include natural places like Uluru Ayers Rock and Iguazu National Park in Argentina. Nevertheless, the monthly search volumes of Burj Khalifa and the Eiffel Tower are less busy than sights where queues are involved.
The Country That Features the Most
Twice among the top ten most Googled sites, the US ranks eighth in New York with over 750,000 monthly searches (758,720) and the Pentagon in Washington 10, with over 730,000 searches (732,930) monthly.
The Statue of Liberty was dedicated in October 1886 and attracts around 3,5 million people each year. It is more than 150 feet tall and is seen from a fair distance-and its iconic symbolism is intriguing for tourists from around the world.
How Do You Compare the Search Volumes of British Landmark?
With more than 540,000 search results, both Big Ben and the London Eye are among the Top 20 most Googled landmarks.
An average, 549 840 monthly searches are now performed in the famed London Eye, where the United Kingdom, the United States and Germany are the countries looking to find this attraction most.
The Taj Mahal is a unique and distinctive architectural achievement in Islamic architecture and therefore, in showing it to tourists, it has been named the world’s Most Googled Landmark, so it’s not surprising that it is the most significant feature in Islamic architecture.
With regard to the other monuments of the top ten Machu Picchu is one of the seven wonders of the world to visit, that’s why the Inca estate has been built by millions of visitors every year. The most interesting sites in Googled are exclusive and fascinating to neighboring countries and foreign indigenous people.
