Here are a handful of other free distribution sites that you can use for SEO purposes. My preference is to use sites with a Page Rank of 4 and above, and I don’t usually bother with PageRank 3 and below sites due to time constraints. Your may be different.
In today’s SEO world, press releases will provide more indirect value than direct value. Direct value comes when the press release URL itself is ranking in search engine results pages (SERPs), which is possible, albeit rare.

Hi Sam! Thank you for the comment. The rule to always follow with a press release is if you don’t have something impressive to share/show, then don’t. It’s great that you have art assets done, but I’m not sure if that is enough to go on. Perhaps if you had a free, playable demo in addition to the art assets, or were inviting people to a beta, etc., then you could for the announcement-type press release, but without those extra, impressive items, I may hold off. Hope that helps.
good site by the way, informative and helpful…I am wondering if you happen to know of the 50+ sites that the PressReleasePoint.com folks send their releases too…for $15 bucks it’s a steal, but I also don’t want to duplicate my efforts either…I did sign up, sent out my first release through them a couple hours ago… I did also write them to ask them the same question, but since you seem to know a great deal about (free sites in general), I was wondering if you knew the answer to my question…thank you in advance…
Not from press releases pickups – there’s a difference between these copy/paste press release pickups and real news coverage. If it’s organic, unique media coverage as a result of the press release (but not just a rerun of the press release itself) the backlinks will likely help your overall SEO.

  1. Remember, you are courting editors, journalists, or TV producers – not consumers. They’re not looking for fancy formatting and they certainly aren’t hoping to be impressed by a writer’s expansive vocabulary. Stick to the point and be sure to include the essentials. Press releases are usually no more than one or two pages long and contain complete media contact information, a headline, dateline, the body of the press release, and three hash marks that state, in journalistic terms, ‘THE END.’
    Another site that has appeared to make a fairly strong entry is NEWSLINE360 – They allow for unlimited submissions of press releases, articles and more while providing an amazing looking newsroom that integrates with your social media. It is actually kind of trippy, all the things it does!!
    And by offering iReach, and its budget-friendly, Web-only distribution options, PR Newswire has made it easier for small businesses, especially, to send their messages to a wider audience, getting in front of both journalists and consumers, and making their news searchable online.
    The dateline: Begin with a dateline of the city in which the press release originated and the date it was issued. This is especially important for small businesses that are distributing their press release to the local media.
