- Plavecké bazény (swimming pools)
This was a popular search during the summer, but not sure why it'd be so popular in December. Perhaps people are already sick of winter and want to go swimming rather than do a winter sport.
- Pošty (post offices)
Always a popular search. For some reason, on Seznam.cz we rank above the actual Czech post office when searching for post offices in Prague. The Czech Post might want to do a little SEO, at least to rank for their own name.
- Kostely (churches)
This is a new one. I don't think we've ever had so much traffic for this category before. The days in December with the most searches for "church" on Nelso.cz? December 25th and December 31st, of course.
- Zubní lékaři (dentists)
No surprises here. Everyone has to go to the dentist.
- Mexické restaurace (Mexican restaurants)
I don't normally think of Czechs as big fans of Mexican food, but this may just be the effect of our SEO efforts in this area.
- Papírnictví (paper and stationery stores)
- Indické restaurace (Indian restaurants)
Wow, the Czechs are getting adventurous. Mexican food, Sushi, and Indian food all in the top 10? What happened to the beloved Czech "knedlíky" (dumplings)?
- Tetovací Studia & Body Piercing (tattoos and body piercing)
I'm now used to the idea of tattoos being a top 10 category, but when I started Nelso a year ago I would never have guessed this category would be so popular.
- Čínské restaurace (Chinese restaurants)
Again, so surprises here. Prague is full of Chinese restaurants, and the Czechs love Chinese food.
