SEO Copywriting: Submitting SEO Press Releases SEO Copywriting: Submitting SEO Press Releases Presentation Transcript

  • Where and How to Submit SEO Press Releases
  • In this slideshow, I’m going to show you the techniques I used that caused this press release to rank in 5 out of the top 10 spots in Google for my target keyword. Note! This type of result is not typical - but it can happen!
  • In this slideshow, I’ll cover: •! Where I submit press releases •! Tips for getting the most use out of each press release distribution point •! Benefits of submitting press releases •! Expectations of press release publishing •! How online press release publishing works
  • Purpose of an Optimized Press Release •! To announce new products, programs, and events happening within your company. •! To gain added visibility on search engines for your keywords. •! To create quality keyword anchor backlinks for your website. •! To trigger email alerts to those who have Google Alerts set up for particular keywords. •! To appear in Google and Yahoo News for your keywords.
  • Notice the Emphasis on Keywords? An optimized press release should include keywords in its title, summary, and in the body of the release. Whenever possible, you want to embed links to your site in your keywords. This is called “anchor text.”
  • Expectations of an Optimized Press Release •! The act of submitting a press release alone will not necessarily drive tons of traffic to your site. •! A press release is designed to make an announcement. If media sites or popular blogs pick up on the news, you may see an increase in traffic. •! Even if media sites and bloggers do not report on your PR, you will still enjoy the benefits inherent of Google News visibility, possible visibility in the natural search engine results, and building targeted links back to your website.
  • Things You’ll Need Before You Begin… (For a FREE copy of my e -book “How to Write SEO An optimized press release Press Releases,” visit In Word Doc format. /2008/02/11/press-release/)
  • Things You’ll Need Before You Begin… A small and large version of an image to be included with your release. A place to host images online. Image 1 - no bigger than 1000x1000px Image 2 - no bigger than 250x250px

  • How FREE Online Press Release Distribution Works Many free press release distributors will publish your press release only on their directory. This does not give you much exposure, but it does create an optimized page on the web with keywords linking back to your site that can rank in the search engines. Some free press release submission sites will also submit your release to Google News.
  • How PAID Online Press Release Distribution Works If you’re going to pay to distribute a press release, the company should have a system of pushing your news out to numerous news sites and/or journalists. I’ve found PR Web to be the most effective paid distribution site. PR Web will publish your headline on hundreds of thousands of sites via RSS news feeds.
  • Many times I use only free or very low cost submission sites. For news of particular interest, I will also use PRWeb. In fact, in the example where I ranked in 1/2 of the top spots in Google, I only used free press release submission sites.
  • Resource Eleven: PR Web Cost = $80, $120, $200 or $360
  • Submitting to PR Web At the $200 upgrade level 1. Enter the body of your release. 2. Highlight your keyword. 3. Click Enter your URL at the first prompt. “Linkwriter” to add anchor text. Enter your keyword at the second prompt.
  • Submitting to PR Web 4. Enter terms people may use to find your release in Technorati. 5. Select 10 industries related to your release. 6. Select 5 cities (for RSS news feeds that display news filtered only for a specific city.)
  • Submitting to PR Web 7. Click “skip” until you reach “file attachments and click “apply feature now.” 8. Click “Upload File” and select up to 3 images, PDFs, slideshows, or other files to attach to the release.
  • Submitting to PR Web 9. Drag your main image from the right column into the image slot in the press release body.
  • Submitting to PR Web 10. Drag additional images and files from the right column to the left column. 11. Enter a keyword optimized title and description for your image.
  • Finding Niche Press Release Distributors The press release distribution sources I showed you are for submitting general news. Your specific industry may have additional niche sites where you can submit your press release.
  • Finding Niche Press Release Distributors Do a search for your keyword in Google News and look for the different publishers submitting releases.
  • Other Ways to Use Your Press Release •! Create a “press center” on your site and publish your releases. •! Send press releases to your industry specific magazines, trade publications, and local newspapers. •! Send press releases to customers and potential customers.
  • Happy Press Release Writing! To your success, Christine O’Kelly
