My experience has been along the lines of what sugarrae posted. I may not get any link benifit directly from prweb, but I've found that the better the quality of my release the more websites that pick it up and consequently, the more links I get. I'm sure many of these links are passing value in traffic and PR. If I put out a lame release, I hardly get any links or traffic. If I put out a really good one, I get lots of links from sites that pick up the release, lots of traffic from sites that pick up the release, lots of phone calls from radio stations for interviews which result in good traffic and occasionally links, some calls for interviews from various news websites that want to write their own story to publish... more traffic and sometime links.
