    I had a recent boost in sales and was very pleased but also suspicious how this came about. I emailed a few customers, about where they heard my company too & they sent me this link back.

    Congrats! Did you buy one of those press release packages from the BST section? That could have done it.

    All publicity is good publicity (Y)

    Now if you ever want to sell your site than you will have a really good social proof :)
