Forget Google for a Minute – Look at These Baby Lions


WordStream’s founder and CTO, Larry Kim, isn’t just a PPC veteran and secret linkbuilding addict – he’s also a world traveler and accomplished amateur photographer. Last week he traveled to Africa with his frankly gorgeous wife (who is also a surgeon!) and took some drop-dead amazing photos of the local wildlife.

Naturally, I wanted to find a way to post some of his fantastic shots on the blog, so I took a page from PPC Memes’ book and did what I could to make them relevant to search marketing. (Also, I’m back in the Boston office this week, and the combination of after-work drinks and minor jetlag has made forming full sentences more difficult than usual.)

So please enjoy (and share!) these search marketing memes – the captions are mine, but the photos are all Larry.

Justin Kownacki has a theory about why Pinterest is so popular:

This makes Pinterest seem like a haven for materialistic desperadoes living out their consumerist dreams.  But why is a service whose chief value proposition amounts to “Hey, look at all this shit I can’t afford BUT WANT SO MUCH!!!” becoming so popular?

I think it’s because we all subconsciously miss the mall.

Have a great weekend!
