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!
