Google autocomplete for “Why does …” for European countries

Tip: See my list of the Most Common Mistakes in English. It will teach you how to avoid mis­takes with com­mas, pre­pos­i­tions, ir­reg­u­lar verbs, and much more.

When you start typing a search query into Google, it gives you suggestions based on what other people are searching for. The following map shows the top suggestion for the question “Why does …?” for European countries, e.g. what comes up after “Why does Germany …”.

However, the suggestions differ from country to country. To generate the map, I used a VPN based in New York, so the results reflect what Americans search for. If you access Google from another country (or perhaps even a different part of the US), you may get different suggestions.
