How credible is a news source that puts out press releases as if they are news. "Macon Area Online is now ranked # 5 at Yahoo and # 6 at Google under searches for Macon and is getting over 20,000 hits per day!" There are two things that are entirely wrong with this crap news.
1.) this crap message got syndicated all over the web through Moveover feeds
2.) on top of being a crappy PR article, Google powers Yahoo so them announcing different rankings is rather...um...stupid
later they continue with "If you are looking to take advantage of the fastest growing and most powerful marketing tool in the world, call us at 478-474-3482."
Now that statement is a bit unclear. Are we to assume Macon Online is this marketing tool? If this tool is Google, then why would we call Macon Online? Perhaps the author makes a fundamental attribution error and assumes we are as dumb as he is.
