Google's Domination In Search Isn't Everywhere [searchengineworld.com]
Mountain View, California-based Google has grown to become the leading Internet search engine company in most global markets, yet it still lags far behind among the populations of a small group of key nations such as China and Russia, where local search firms such as Baidu and Yandex have flourished and are now seeking to build on the local advantages they hold over the global search leader.

Besides China and Russia, Google has struggled in Japan, South Korea and the Czech Republic, despite increased efforts over the past three years to make inroads with consumers in the few nations where it has not had the type of phenomenal success it has achieved in many nations.

An excellent round-up of search opportunities in, as yet, territory unconquered by Google.

I would guess this same list applies to most US companies...
