The Most Popular Colors

The Most Popular Color is...

Most people have a favorite color. However, when it comes down to it, what is the most popular color? Car.com states that white is the most popular car color. However, people don't always buy cars depending on their favorite color. For example, people with red cars have to pay more for car insurance which might sway some red-loving person to buy a different color car. Plus, white reflects sunlight rather than absorbing it as black cars do. Back to the point though, a study has been done on this very topic. The results, found at http://channels.isp.netscape.com/whatsnew/package.jsp?name=fte/popularcolor/popularcolor&floc=wn-nx, declare blue as the most popular color based on the results of 17 countries. As I often do when I find something intriguing, I googled it. That is to say that I googled every color and made a graph of each one's corresponding search results. The chart is below:

NUMBER OF GOOGLE SEARCH RESULTS
NUMBER OF GOOGLE SEARCH RESULTS

It is safe to say that one cannot come to a conclusion based on the Google search results. However, it is interesting to see how the colors differ based on internet popularity. Keep in mind when you search a term like "brown," a lot of results will come back with people who have the last name Brown like author Dan Brown. That means these results are not based on colors alone. Instead, they are based on the words "white," "pink," "red," etc. Anyway, I was surprised to see that the color red has almost as many results as the color white. I do, though, believe that the above study suggesting that blue is the most popular color is accurate. We are constantly sorrounded by blue things such as the sky and the ocean. These things are very calming, and we therefore enjoy the presence of the color blue. Still, I want to see what your favorite color is. Please take the time to vote in the poll below. Thank you!

What is your favorite color?
