Many of the most-Googled brands in each state are headquartered in that state, such as Home Depot in Georgia, Target in Minnesota and McDonald's in Illinois.

Note: That Gillette is the most frequently searched company in Wyoming could be due to the fact that the state's fourth-most populous town is also named "Gillette."
