Sid Dickens must be doing something right because he’s trending online.
The Vancouver artist, best known for his storyboard memory blocks, topped Kijiji Canada’s Top 5 searches for 2014.
Coming in second is security guards, so if you’re in that line of business, you might want to consider posting an ad.
Antiques, cargo vans and Ford’s F-350 trucks round out the Top 5 list.
Curious to know what else made the list? We were too, which is why we pulled data for the top 200 searches on Kijiji Canada.
Besides your typical cars, campers, furniture items, TVs and puppy searches, snakes popped up as the top searched pet coming in at No. 19. Dogs beat cats though, for the record, with Dobermans, Shih Tzus, Bulldogs and Shiba Inus all in the top 100 searches.
The sexy saxophone was also the top instrument coming in at No. 8.
More telling of Vancouver residents though, is the number of searches dedicated to heavy machinery. Everything from snowblowers, welders, backhoes, tractors and bale feeders were among the top 200.
The Vancouver Canucks will be taking a shot to their ego because Vancouver residents have been searching for Ontario Hockey League’s Sarnia Stings merchandise and Winnipeg Jets tickets (yes, we are as puzzled as you are about this one).
In the battle of Android verses iPhone, Apple products are prevailing still with people looking for iPads, iPod touches, iPhone 4, iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c.
Sony’s PlayStation 4 also beat out Microsoft’s XBOX One, with PS4 coming in at 19 on the list and XBOX One not evening placing.
A rhino also came in among the top 100 searches, but whether that’s a search for the animal or Marvel Universe’s Rhino action figure will be left up to you to decipher.
Other unusual, but interesting searches include dragons, masks and massages.
Looking for a job? You might want to become a driving instructor, heavy equipment operator, mechanic, painter, barista or an electrician — all of whom where heavily searched.
Surprisingly, yoga bigwig Lululemon didn’t even crack the top 200 searches, but we suspect it may be because it recently tried to hammer down on a number of its customers who were reselling products online by blocking them from buying more products on its website. The company said it has since apologized for going to the extremes and has revised its reselling policy, warning its customers that it does not support those who acquire its products in large volumes to resell at an elevated price point.
