Dear Schmuck: This Stuff Writes Itself

Corey Rudl sent me another exercise-in-self-parody email today. An excerpt in case you didn't have your daily belly laugh yet:

Hi Albert,

I don't know if I am writing this e-mail out of frustration or relief... I mean, search engines are still the most effective online marketing tools that are free.

But trying to decipher all of the BS information that the so-called search engine "experts" are peddling was driving me crazy (Though my girlfriend, Tracy, insists that I was crazy way before this :-).

I'm sure you know the “so-called experts” I'm referring to… we all get spammed by them.

And I have looked everywhere for a piece of software that could actually deliver what it promised and get my customers (and me!) ranked well in the search engines... not just the top five, but in the top 150 engines.


Tracy, I hope for your sake you're enjoying Corey's company and living for the moment with lots of fun rides in a fancy convertible. But trust us, he's not crazy. That would be a nice excuse, but alas! No, he's so sane, he just blew my mind! Luckily, his email was addressed to a guy named Albert, so I chose not to buy the crap he's peddling.
