    Do press releases work for site ranks


    Hi every one. Can any body suggest how press releases are helpful in enhancing target traffic in a particular area we wish to publicize?

    Press Release offers an excellent way to let people know about new development about your site.

    Like the rest of link building techniques, quality is much more important than mere quantity (of press release sites )

    It's important that you have something indeed newsworthy and it should be interesting to your target audience.

    Established sites like PRWeb, PRleap, PRnewswire have an excellent reach. ( prnewswire even offers help to optimize your PR for higher search engine ranking )

    Thus you gain a strong back link plus you achieve a great distribution across your target audience.

    Hope this helps.

    When was the last time you read a press release about a website? Can't remember?

    When was the last time you read a news report about a website? ??

    Go to one of the press release sites and look for something interesting. Find anything?

    How many news writers do you think have to go to press release websites to get information to write an article?

    Go to a press release site right now and tell me if it is any better than the spam that arrives in your email.

    How many press releases do you think I write each year?

    Now, if you want to see a contrast go to Reddit or Slashdot. If you can write something that will be voted up there, then you will get links and PR.

    i never go after the 2-tier, 3-tier press release sites, but i've had an excellent RoI as far as the sites i mentioned are concerned.

    I agree that there's too much "noise" in these sites as is the case with most SBM sites these days; BUT at the end of the day, you end up having stronger backlinks at least. ( i even had two funding offers from venture capitalists thanks to the press releases i did )
