  • 3. It’s all about traffic – get links to your website
    In general, websites are not search friendly:
    Need lots of text, 300 – 500 words
    Position key messages high
    Use headings
    Tag images and video clips
    Don’t use Flash or PDF
    Most of this is out of scope for this audience, so today we’ll focus on Press Releases

    Avoid marketese
  • 8. On your own website you have more control over formatting.
    Only 1 heading level 1 (H1) – use for Title of the release
    Can use multiple H2, H3 etc
    Valuable keywords at the beginning of H1 if possible, i.e. Still needs to be catchy

  • 9. A link to the client’s website helps them greatly.
    Link to the home page is fine.
    But a deep link to an inner page is better.
