Google Names Digital Capitals of Each State




ecitiesGoogle has identified what they believe to be the digital capitals of each state. Why? So we can argue over their choices, of course.

The Official Google Blog tells us

Given the importance of the web in growing our local businesses and our local economies, we worked with independent research firm IPSOS to analyze the online strength of local businesses in cities and towns across America. Businesses in these communities are embracing the power of the web to find new customers, connect with existing ones and fuel their local economies.

So did your town make the list? Why should it be there instead of the one that ‘represents’ your state?

Here in North Carolina I would not disagree with the choice of Cary. I bet some in Boston might take offense to not getting the nod in Massachusetts. How about Carlsbad, CA? What’s the matter San Fran? Losing your edge?

Go ahead and give us your choice and why.

    Lots of pretty obvious choices here. Lexington is a no-brainer for KY, Boulder for CO… but a few I’d not heard of. This kind of would serve as a “where to move” if you’re a tech pro looking for change.

    Carlsbad! Strange. That’s upper San Diego county for those of you who aren’t SoCal residents. It’s a pretty small town, upper end, a couple of famous people live around there. Tony Hawk was born there. Color me surprised.
