In Colorado, the biggest increases in search query traffic between April and October were Alejandro Gomez Monteverde’s blockbuster film “Sound Of Freedom” and “severe thunderstorm warning,” which isn’t much of a surprise given the stormy weather prevalent across the Rocky Mountain region.

The third biggest mover search traffic wise was “Connections NYT,” which stems from The New York Times’ word association game that became a pop culture hit over the summer.

Other topics that surged in search traffic popularity over the summer months included the OceanGate Expeditions craft that was located in the North Atlantic, which saw a 950% increase in Google search traffic, followed by searches for “Juneteenth” (750% increase), “iPhone 15” (600% increase) and “Barbie” (400%).

Rounding out the list in the Centennial State between April and October were searches for Colorado Rockies games — which are available for wagering on Colorado sports betting apps — MLB standings updates and “Tina Turner” (350% increase apiece).
