Here at Post Launch, we know the importance of stating the facts in your content when it comes to Internet marketing. If you write content that’s not true or accurate, or if you’re trying to mislead your audience, you could get punished by Google or lose credibility with your customers. But, for the sake of celebrating April Fool’s Day, we’d like to share with you all some of the most ridiculous—and hilarious—things people read on the Internet and believed were true. We humbly thank all the Internet trolls out there for these gems.
