Elon Musk has been at top of Google’s search engine for the past few years. But this week, he was overtaken by food delivery apps like Uber Eats and DoorDash.
The Tesla CEO’s name was searched more than 1.6 million times between Monday and Wednesday in the U.S., according to Google Trends. That’s more than any other person or entity in America, including President Donald Trump (who came in second place with more than 1 million searches) and President Barack Obama (who ranked third).
But while Musk continues to rank highly in terms of the sheer volume of searches, his relevance is fading as a result of a growing number of options available to consumers looking for food delivery services.
According to Google Trends, there were nearly 22 million searches for “Uber Eats” alone between Monday and Wednesday—an increase of about 15% compared with last week alone—and there were nearly 3 million more searches for DoorDash than there were for its closest competitor Postmates (which has a larger market share).
The company has been in the news lately with its decision to cut ties with him after some employees raised concerns about his behavior towards women. This may be part of why he’s so popular right now—because people are looking for ways to make a difference in their own lives and get proactive about their happiness.
The tech billionaire has been on a bit of a streak lately. Last week, he was the most searched-for person on YouTube, and now he’s the top-searched person on a new fast-food delivery app. The top searches for Elon Musk have been “Elon Musk,” “Elon Musk Quotes,” “Elon Musk Tesla,” and “Elon Musk Space X.” All of these are relevant to him being CEO of SpaceX and Tesla Motors.
But that’s not all: The top searches for chef Nick Offerman include “Nick Offerman Books,” “Nick Offerman Net Worth,” “Nick Offerman Wife” and “Nick Offerman Wife Name.” It’s unclear why people are so interested in Nick Offerman. Perhaps they’re looking for some tips on how to cook s’mores using wood from his chestnut-wood carving set?
