50 States Text List

Use this list of 50 states, in text (and capitals below) for any project where you need to easily copy and paste them. I searched everywhere for a simple text list to copy for a PPC campaign I was working on and had no luck. Hopefully this is useful to someone other than myself.

Google’s recent update has dropped this page down from 1 to 10 because they don’t think it’s relevant. Based on the feedback from all of you – this is the most relevant page out there. Please keep commenting and sharing so we can help more people save time with this easy text list. Thanks!

    I don’t see how it could be any MORE relevant to anyone who creates web content geared toward a US, as the content will, inevitably, have to be localized and this is a template that is needed and handy for just such a project and is such a simple template that everyone overlooks/undervalues until they find themselves manually typing out the same mundane alphabetical list of states….again…(Well thats been my experience lol).

    I would appeal that demotion, that employee was obviously incompetent. I gave this page a shoutout and a linkback on my new blog so far, and would be happy to do the same on my other sites for you

    My name is Mrs.Stella Adams, i am a dying woman who has decided to donate what i have to you and to support your humanitarian activities and to help the poor and the needy in Your society.

    I am 55 years old and i was diagnosed for cancer of the lung for about 4years ago, immediately after the death of my husband, who has left me everything he worked for and because the doctors told me i will not live longer than some weeks because of my health, i decided to WILL/DONATE the sum of USD6,500,000.00 (Six Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars) to you for the good work of humanity, and also to help the motherless and less privilege and also for the assistance of the widows.

    I wish you all the best and may the good Lord bless you abundantly, and please use the funds well and always extend the good work to others. Please i want you to promise me that you will use 30% to support your humanitarian activities and to help the poor and the needy in your society.

    I will appreciate your utmost confidentiality in this matter until the task is accomplished as i don’t want anything that will jeopardize my last wish. Contact my lawyer Barrister John Abraham with this specified email: ( alabijassocites@yahoo.com ) and tell him that, i have WILLED (USD$6,500,000.00) to you and I have also notified him.

    Thanks and God bless you.

    Mrs. Stella Zainab Adams

    It is so time consuming to create this list each time I want to use it. THANK YOU! Thank you! Thank you!

    Re. the Google search ranking punishment:
    Your “Accredited Professional – Bing Ads” badge up top is 3x the size of your Google badge. Three various G+ links throughout the page does not make up for that.

    Maybe it does though, you were my first click and I don’t think you were #10.

    Why am I still here, I could have typed out my states by now…


    P.S. you should remove a state in the middle for those of us too lazy to look them over/count them.

  • Thanks, Jordon. Position one, page one when I searched “list of states copy paste” :)

    Just a heads up for anyone else copying and pasting into Google Ads for targeting: Make sure you target Georgia the state and not the country. When I added locations in bulk it pulled the country and almost slipped by me.

    Hopefully that saves someone a few bucks.
