    Press Release Results

    I did three test press releases recently. Here's what I've learned so far.

    I did three press releases using three different distribution services:

    Here are the results so far:

    PRLeap: %22MemeBridge+Launches+English+Language+News+Site+ for+Montenegro%22&filter=0 - 196 results

    PRWeb: %22Tech-FAQ+Uses+Technology+To+Fight+Censorship%22&filter= 0 - 9,620 results

    MyPRGenie(PrNewsWire): %22MemeBridge+Launches+Web+Initiatives+to+Combat+t he+Great+Recession%22&filter=0 - 8,420 results

    I am not seeing significant traffic or SERP improvements from these press releases. Google may have automated mechanisms in place to discount links from press releases.

    But why would Google do so - as people visiting to the Press release also visit the site from the link which must be consider as a traffic.

    Possibly because the links are not natural.

    Possibly because all of the duplicates of the press releases are duplicate content, which Google just went after with the Farmer/Panda update.

    It is probably a bit early to judge the results. I suggest waiting 30 to 60 days to see if there is any improvement. Most things happen much slower with Google these days.

    I dont think so google discount the links because each back link through press release should be treated as a vote for your site.
    these are the main advantage of Press Release:
    Boosts your site’s Ranking in Search Engines
    Drives targeted traffic to your website
    Increases one-way valid backlinks to your website
    Increases your product sales
    Helps to get your pages crawled easily by major search engines
    Press releases will increase your link popularity, traffic and sales!

    It will still gives you nice backlinks juice. I expect your site to up several page for your targeted keywords (if you target any keyword).

    And that's the reason why I only use free press release site if all I want is backlink. Doesn't worth the buck to invest $100 - $200 for backlinks from syndicated content imo.
