30 Best Press Release Distribution Sites Revealed

By , on July 13, 2010 | Go to comments

Updated on May 8, 2013 (we replaced 11 websites from the previous list.)

Press release distribution was the focal point of 2009 link-building campaigns. Many high-end SEO companies used this technique to:

1-     Provide their clients with a presence on Google News

2-     Drive more targeted traffic to their clients’ sites

3-     Obtain high-quality inbound links.

We were no exception. We used press releases extensively. We even spent countless hours researching and testing different press release distribution sites and prepared the list below. This list will help you identify the best press release distribution sites and only submit to those that are worth while – saving much time, money and energy in testing them yourself.

Note: you need a standard high-quality press release before submitting to these sites, or your release will be rejected.

    Lorrie Walker, do you think that these press release sites are helpful in business promotion and gaining traffic and business? I personally think that now press release sites are not helpful as link-building and marketing trends have changed.

    Pressat is a good PR site, not free but middle priced.

    This is a topic that’s close to my heart… Best wishes! Exactly where are your contact details though?

    Just wondering if there are any new or better PR distribution sites that have come along since this article was written. Thanks!

    As Alex mentioned, there is PRUnderground.com, which is a Google News source and distributes to 15+ social media sites as well for $20-$39/release. Pagerank is 4.

    Just tested in August by Forbes (http://www.prunderground.com/pr-underground-mentioned-in-forbes-article-on-the-current-state-of-press-releases/0026236/)

    It is NOT a place to get direct press coverage, but is good for getting your news into Google and social media at an affordable price.

    Hi

    Does anyone have an idea about abnewswire.com though? It’s targeted media distribution is very reasonable even the web , but I am not sure if it’s any good. I would appreciate your feedback.

    Thanks.
