Press releases are more valuable than you think.

Some of the ones that you have to pay for are even better! Try distributing a major press release once a month and see what happens to your online presence

I tried a free press release site and it was alright. I never saw it rank that well to be honest. I am kind of lost in no mans land as far as what I should do. I suppose a PR that ranked well would be amazing.

I would imagine old fashioned hard work will be required to release a press release. I don't think there is a "Magic" bullet. Pun intended.

Press release help to produce many back hyperlinks. Press release can be published about new activities related to your business or services which will usually include a website link to the website.

We launched our first press release a few weeks ago with great results. We opted for the paid version as this allowed placement of 3 anchor links. We're going to run another release next month but using the free version to see if we get the same result.

Here is one: free-press-release.com. But as it was mentioned, you can google for free press release companies.

Who did you use for your press release? I did a search and it seems like a majority of the companies will post it for free on their site with limited features and then want to charge for it to go to main stream media or add links. Thanks for the advice!

Well, some of them are charging over $400 for submitting to prime news providers. However, they can't promise immediate, if any publication, since the news editors decide what is "newsworthy". Some of them use their own publications, and then it is cheaper and guaranteed. Free publications are useful to get your information out there and have backlinks to your site.
