    Thanks for the great breakdown. Google’s quarterly earnings showed that close to 50% of revenues were international. If Yandex’s model is mimicked in other regions to create tailored “local” search engines it could really halt Google’s growth. Yandex shows that it can be done.

    This info is either outdated or they are hiding somethign from you :-) Yandex made a public statement in June that they are going to launch in Turkey by the end of 2011. They also said they are looking into Indonesia, Vietnam and Egypt. So not much \going West\ really :-) Translations of various tools into English are more for attracting Western advertisers imho.
