i am about to publish some PR about my new products and new websites. Questions I have are:
Do I publish two different PR's about same product? One would be for my website and one would be for PR publishing website or do I publish PR and get it indexed and then let PR publishing company use it. not sure how to go about it. To me it makes sense to make 2 different ones but wanted to check with you guys as well.

You might clarify if you are talking about "the real world" or "the web world".
If you have a real product and a real company, the convention is to make a single press release, which you release through one more more legitimate press-release agencies (such as, say, PRNewsWire). You will typically have to pay (several hundred dollars) to release through the agency.
You would also archive the press release on your web site, in your "press" or "investor relations" section (the latter if a public company).
If you're talking about some other kind of new-agey "press release", I have no idea. Lord knows what people are calling a press release these days.

Nothing wrong, of course, with posting additional supportive material on your web site. Indeed, there usually will be plenty - catalog listing, data sheet, white paper(s), etc. And of course a front-page blurb.
