Great stories always win. Touching story, beautifully illustrated for the +Airbnb #BelongAnywhere campaign: - fantastic execution +Dennis Goedegebuure and team!
In May 2012, an Airbnb guest, Cathrine, told us a powerful story of a trip she took to Berlin with her father, Jörg, a Berlin Wall guard at the height of the Cold War. She wanted to show him the vibrant city Berlin had become, but it was the man they met at their Airbnb apartment that changed everything for Jörg. #BelongAnywhere

Well researched article. But Google's been primarily a media conglomerate for so long now, that I don't expect make goods on search quality. Being an 'all things to all people' company rarely works, and I fear in reaching for that, they've lost the message in key areas. But they answer to Wall Street, not the public, and clearly, betting against them is not a winning position either.
If Google breaks promises it once made about search, does it need to better explain why to keep trust with users? That's the focus of my +Marketing Land column this week (and I think it should).

Realizing I am in the minority on this, I do not think WP is a good platform for enterprise in general - lots of caveats go with using it in that environment. It can be done, with asterisks ;)
Here is +Jaclyn Sorese's latest blog post about clarifying WordPress Myths about security, misconceptions that big business does not use the platform, and Why Major Companies are Using Custom designed Sites. There is a case study about +Search Engine Land and our interview with +Michelle Robbins SEL's Vice President of Technology. +Ronnie Bincer +David Amerland +Danny Sullivan  #wordpressplugins  +Joost de Valk 
Many non e-commerce established sites like GE, Amex, TechCrunch and Search engine Land use a custom WordPress platform. Learn about the reasons & myths of WP.
