Unfortunately most other markets don’t get to see background images, but that looks like it might be changing.  Our friend PicturePan2 of  reports that China has been getting background images for the past 3 days:



A quick check of some messenger buddies shows that the images have been showing up on and off in other markets.  Are you seeing them?


Of course background images aren’t going to change the game in search, but we kind of like them anyway.
