Sure – you’re probably like me and make a genuine effort to regularly get good backlinks pointing at your websites, but when was the last time you sent out a press release?

PRESS RELEASES

Ahhhh… I knew it! Same here – not as often as we should!

While we know that LINKS to our site in general are still important and effective to seperate ourselves from the competition, it is also advantageous to have a good diversity of links coming in to our sites.

Press Releases, whether paid or free, can offer some great high quality links PLUS also offer the advantage of real traffic.

I’m not here to promote any particular service or software, but just thought I’d share this nugget with you as I just finished writing a press release for my new ecom store.

While it can be worthwhile to pay for a press release to be distributed, it is also effective to use free press release submission services and/or software.

The one I use is software I bought a few years ago. Yes it still works but is no longer available.

You can however search google and find truly free distribution services. Be careful – a lot of them say free and it turns out they offer free registration and actually charge money to distribute the release. I know – that is shady.

One site that is actually free as of this writing is www.pr.com 

They also offer upgrades for deeper distribution but to be onest a good press release published on a domain that is indexed by Google is good enough.

Give it a try.

Oh and if you want to do a little more research on press releases a good article on both free and paid services is at this link.
