Welcome back to our monthly series examining the top Google Trends in Puerto Rico, Guam, the United States Virgin Islands, American Samoa, and the Northern Mariana Islands.

Trends data is an unbiased sample of Google search data. It’s anonymized (no one is personally identified), categorized (determining the topic for a search query), and aggregated (grouped together). Each month we’ll embed the direct data tables from Google so you can dig in deeper and learn more about each topic and the levels of interest over time. We will also mention the top rising queries, which are those with the biggest increase in search frequency since the last time period.

Puerto Rico

Rising topics: Boston Celtics, Mother’s Day, May, Mother, and Los Angeles Lakers.


Rising topics: Typhoon, Tropical Cyclone, Radar, Rose, and National Weather Service.

US Virgin Islands

Rising topics: Mother’s Day, Tina Turner, Miami Heat, The Virgin Islands Daily News, and the Boston Celtics.

American Samoa

Rising topics: Christianity, Cause, Letter, President, and Birthday.

Northern Mariana Islands
