The Top Cities for Equipment Rental Search

If someone wants something, they are probably going to use Google to find it. With an estimated 40K Google Searches per every second, looking into the data behind Google Search can provide insight into almost any niche.

Quipli, an equipment rental software solution, conducted a study to evaluate which U.S. cities have the highest demand for equipment rentals by analyzing how many searches occur within each city for the most popular types of equipment rentals.

By analyzing this data, Quipli has been able to pinpoint the U.S. cities that have the most people searching for equipment rentals.

“Understanding the importance of how local search behavior ties into equipment rentals is essential for rental companies aiming to succeed in their market, especially as the rental industry continues to move online. We hope this study shines light on how important it is for equipment rental companies to focus on their online visibility, as well as reveal overlooked markets for small business owners looking to branch out.”

About The Data in this Study: 

The data in this study is based on Google’s estimations of keyword search volume. Based on the sample size of this study and Google’s tendency to underestimate search volume, true search volume for each city is likely higher. Google does not provide exact amounts, but does provide monthly estimations.

The Process:

We created a list of 35 thousand keywords and ran them through a tool called Keywords Everywhere. This tool collects keyword usage estimation data from Google at a monthly level.

With this keyword data, we grouped keywords by city to understand the total rental product demand.
