Write the release for readers/journalists first 2. Review your list of keyword targets (Hint: “Google Keyword Tool”) 3. Place terms logically into the release where it makes sense.

Some tools work better than others for specific clients. If you've got the budget, run a test. www.teachtofishdigital.com | 480.389.5435 Copyright 2010. Teach to Fish Digital, LLC
