Add PRLog to List of Free Press Release Distribution Sites

November 11th, 2008

I think it’s worth mentioning another free online press release distribution site mentioned in a recent Fame article, “PR Interview: 13 No-Cost Press Release Distribution Sites Reviewed: Get High SEO Rankings on a Budget.”

Both Daniel Durazo and I received comments about PRLog. One commenter said he got two press releases on the first page of Google results by inserting a niche keyword phrase into the title of the press release. Useful TIP!

Upon review of PRLog this is what I found out about the free service:

-Requires a minimal registration/login process

-Allows hyperlinks to be inserted in to the body of the release

-Masks email addresses in the contact section (to prevent spam)

-Typically submits free releases within 24 hours

-Provides multiple categories and tags (keywords)

-Allows for company logo inclusion

-Automatically creates a downloadable PDF

-Provides visitor statistics

-Allows for editing and deleting releases

<!–[if gte mso 9]> Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 <![endif]–><!–[if gte mso 9]> <![endif]–>

It’s definitely a useful site for any PR professional on a budget. First page Google results is nothing to snuff at. And allowing hyperlinks in the body of the press release free of charge is almost unheard of among the free sites.
