With people nationwide using online shopping more than ever in the last year, CenturyLinkQuote has examined, which online-only shopping stores Americans search for most.

The team analyzed Google search volume data and found that Etsy, a small business holy grail, is the second most searched online store in the nation. In 2020, over 4.3 million sellers sold goods through Etsy, and the platform earned a total revenue of $1.7 billion U.S. dollars. Etsy, which bought fashion resale giant Depop in June, is known for selling handmade and vintage items, with 97% of sellers saying that they run their businesses from home. Some of the website’s best selling products in 2021 include: a women’s necklace, custom dog portraits and men’s lingerie. 

Furthermore, CentruyLinkQuote has found, which company secured the first place spot. It was Amazon, with 34% of the U.S. searching for the e-commerce giant most. The store was recently named the world’s largest retailer outside of China, surpassing Walmart in terms of sales for the first time ever.

  • was the top site in the most states at 17 and secured a net income of over 21 billion dollars for 2020. 
  • In 2020, Etsy had over four thousand sellers and was the most searched in nine states.
  • A 2020 survey found that 97% of Etsy seller respondents liked being able to sell from their homes, one of the reasons for the site’s large and diverse seller inventory. 
  • The Skincare company Curology has only been around for seven years, but six states searched for it the most. 
  • Out of the 13 online shopping stores we looked at, five were popular in only one state—Zappos,, Wayfair,, and 
  • A global survey from Bazaarvoice found that 74% of people have done less in-person shopping over the past year and a half—a habit that 32% of U.S. shoppers plan to continue in the future. 
  • Revenue from e-commerce in the U.S. amounted to $431.6 billion U.S. dollars in 2020 and is estimated to increase to $563.4 billion by 2025.
