It turns out that the author used a picture of a couple who had just gotten engaged.  When that couple found out their beloved picture was on the cover of this…well, not really sure what you’d call it…they were not very pleased.
iReach’s distribution options start with a basic, budget-friendly plan (SearchReach) and build from there (WebReach and WebReach Plus).  Check out the plan comparison page for details about what’s included with each one.
Given that none of the releases was picked up by any site that might be considered to be the source of a valuable link, it seems that there is little value in using these services for link building. However, some of the sites do provide links and a few allow you to tailor the anchor text. (If you’re not familiar with ‘dofollow’ or ‘nofollow’ links, a good rule of thumb is that the ‘dofollow’ or ‘followed’ links are the kind that usually give some SEO benefit and ‘nofollow’ links generally don’t.) Most sites either didn’t give a link or gave a ‘nofollow’ link.
These fancy PR tools give us access to every reporter, producer and editor at every media outlet you can imagine, as well as thousands that you can’t. They also allow us to track the ad value of each piece of media coverage, and let us know when media coverage goes live, including client mentions on TV. In short, if you can afford to hire a PR agency to manage your press release (or ongoing PR needs), you’ll find immense and immediate value in the tools they have at their disposal. That said, it’s still possible to DIY and get results.
Don’t Syndicate. Once the preferred method of press release distribution, syndication is now dead. While some brands used to spend thousands of dollars each month to distribute their press releases, experts like Tim Grice have since come out to say that there is “no value in press release syndication for SEO purposes.” Instead of taking this approach, share your press release with local media outlets. You’ll enjoy a better ROI and your press release get more traction.
I specialize in writing press releases aimed at small businesses, and have been doing this for many years. One of the ways that my press releases are successful, is that almost all of my press releases make it to Google News and/or Bing News, thus giving them a much wider exposure. This particular press release is an example of how to tie-in your piece with a headline making story. It also received a very high pick-up from web services.
Thank you for the informative post. I would like to clarify one question of mine: so it is not true that these authority backlinks coming from the news sites will boost google ranking of the page they are pointing to ?
Final Thoughts: Over the past few years, the popularity of PRWeb as an affordable newswire has dwindled. However, if you do not mind spending $99 for the placement of your news on handful of sites, including financial feeds, social media and PRWeb website, you can give it a go.
Effective? Yes, this helped my book to be picked up by bookstores and websites from here to Russia, China, Australia, etc. By including a description of the book in the press release, we were able to get people interested in the novel. I’m even in my local Barnes & Noble. It was a great way for me to debut my writing and get out there in the publishing world!
Should you do a bulk press release to all with a paid distribution service?  Your strategy must represent your business and vision.  Question:  What is the point in doing so? If you had a specific press release for each venue with a specific landing page for each, wouldn’t you have better opportunity to test for results?
Another news site that offers a lot for s very reasonable price ($79/month) is NEWSLINE360. Unlimited posts of press releases. Your press release goes direct to journalists, you’d social media channels, customers and more. http://www.newsline360.com. Great for content marketing.
One thing comes to the mind of any good journalist when they receive a press release: Why would I care? The news in your news release has to be obvious, or else your notice will be on a fast route to the recycle bin.  The first step is figuring out exactly what message you are trying to get across, and how it qualifies as news.
I paid the extra fees for wider distribution and hyperlinks. (not included otherwise) BUT: PR.COM sends the release out with all links being nofollow! That makes it utterly worthless in terms of SEO. PR.COM strongly suggests using the extra service – paid hyperlinks – for SEO and never makes it clear they will do the links as nofollow.
