Good for them. Nice to see Pubcon regulars do well. I think they did a lot of things right, including understanding SEO long before any other competitors.

Have also heard that mgt threw over $3million in bonuses at employees. DM's office was said to be a river of tears when he started handing out as much as 100k each to employees...

That's fabulous. I always dropped by PRWeb's booth at WebmasterWorld conferences and they're sessions were always very informative. Good for them.

Not surprised they treated their employees so well. They seem like a class act.

Congratulations to PRWeb's employees.

I have certainly benefited from their press release distribution services over the years.
