How are other countries, like Ireland, not popular on the internet?


After so many years of the Internet being in place, the many Chinese and other languages should also be just as present. I think the issue is maybe that English speakers do English searches in Google (or similar) which return English results mostly. If a searcher lived say in the Far East and did a search in Korean or Chinese, I’ll bet the results look different to what an English searcher sees.

That said, I’m also not too sure how well Google is optimised for returning non-English results. Do French or Italian speakers find search engines up to par for their languages?

I can use internet in french and I know that korean and japanese internet do exists. The question seems so weird to me. Other non-english countries do not have websites in their languages ? If I wanted, I could use mostly french websites to browse the web.
