Online Marketing Promotion: Laugh At My Dumb Mistake!
I admit it.
Sometimes I do dumb, stupid things.
Here is one.
For as long as I've been IN this business, I've been making

about an hour ago. …
The BLUE LINK in Google reads …

1 time out of 100 do you get an infection! Great. Simply
Anyway, now read THIS from my Google listing:
“Now some people who use the software to create their sales
letters may have removed or ….. I purchased Push Button Sales
Letters about an hour ago.”
THAT text was made by GOOGLE since I didn't have a meta
description in my header on my page.
Here is what Yanik has on his Instant Sales Letters:
Note the TITLE makes you want to click. And he includes the
term “business letters” which is one of the high-search terms
And then look at that description. THAT is what will appear in
Google. If you search sales letters again in Google and scroll
