Ottawa, What Do Your Buy and Sell Searches Say About You?

When I asked around, you Ottawa, got a bad rap. “What’s the Ottawa stereotype?” I asked. The replies were all the same, “boring,” “no fun,” “no culture,” “civil servants,” you get the idea.

But I looked at your number one search terms on and I thought, “these people can’t be right,” Ottawa is a very cultured city, Nikon is at number one, they must be an artsy bunch. No crappy iPhone pictures for them, they like style, they like class, they like to create.

But no.

A quick scan down the rest of your top 10 list put me right.

Ottawa, “shed” has to be the most culturally defunct search term EVER.
