Top Searches

Dog walking services often ask me what cities and towns have the most searches on Although the general answer, “all over the United States” would be accurate, I wanted to give you an idea of the top ten city searches has seen in the last 30 days. The results change frequently, often because of changes with Google, but it’s interesting to see how various cities rank in terms of number of visits in the last 30 days.

Top 10 Dog Walker Searches (last 30 days):

  • Los Angeles, California
  • San Francisco, California
  • Long Island, New York
  • New York City, New York
  • Colorado Springs, Colorado
  • Louisville, Kentucky
  • Phoenix, Arizona
  • Jacksonville, Florida
  • Las Vegas, Nevada
  • Indianapolis, Indiana

One thing to keep in mind is that I am not tracking zip code or neighborhood searches, so some of the searches are probably light. For example, if someone searched 10023, the zip code for the Upper West Side neighborhood of New York City’s Manhattan borough, I did not count it because there are a ton of zip code searches and that would be very difficult to track 🙂

Another thing to keep in mind is that there are many thousands of people who search every month, and lots of these searches are for dog walkers in cities and towns of all sizes.

Finally, as you check out the search results in the most highly searched areas, you’ll notice that some have 10 or fewer local listings. If hundreds of people search a month in large cities, and there are 10, 8, or even just 5 listings, think of the odds of those advertisers getting calls. Pretty good if you ask me, especially considering the cost is under $50 a year. In some mid-sized cities with just a few dog walker listings (and some with NO listings yet), there is an even bigger and better opportunity for new clients to find you.
