If you use Google Images to search for your city / town / area / etc name, what sort of images do you get on the first couple of pages ?

If I search for Tampa Bay I get mostly images for our local sports teams (Rays, Bucs, Lightning), cheerleaders for these sports, and beaches. If I look for Clearwater Florida I get almost exclusively beach and swimming pool photos.

Trout Creek Montana gets me mostly recreational stuff like hunting and fishing and camping and vacationing, and also some real estate and a couple maps.

Edinburgh unsurprisingly comes up with images of the Castle (one of Scotlands biggest tourist attractions) and a couple of the Edinburgh Military Tattoo parade.

For Seattle I would have suspected Pearl Jam and Nirvana, not the space needle.

If it was 1994 I'd have to agree with you :lol:
