Hi,

After the conference there is a heavy talks on PR(press relations) , getting listed in Google News and Yahoo news will help the business grow rankingwise and Brandwise.

- What are the ways we can get a listing in google news, yahoo news and other news sites on net(cost effictive)?
- what will be the ROI?
- What are the famous(in terms of searches, links)sites for it?
- How many days will the listing be there in the news search ( I heard its just 30 days).

Thanks

I've been using PRweb quite a bit recently and paying the bit extra to get into Yahoo and Google news. It may not be the best way, but it is a start and relatively easy.

Yahoo! News will cost you $80 a pop with Feature Xpress or PRWeb.

There's no need to pay for anything to get into Google news: put your press release on PRLeap or Press World.

- what will be the ROI?

There are way too many factors in play to know this in advance. It will help however to optimize your press release for your target keywords.

I'm not sure I understand this question.

Correct.

Thanks Jim and notredamekid for the info,

with $80 I will have to check my ROI properly,

I found prleap.com , but by press world do you mean theworldpress.com, if there are other sites please mention the urls, it will help me a lot.

Right, there are too many factors, but since it will be there for just 30 days, I just need to check my ROI.

A suggestion of mine would be to provide an RSS feed for your press releases and submit the feed URL to sites like feedster.com, feedsfarm.com (these both archive content) and try giving moreover.com a shot, getting into moreover would also give you extra audience in the MSN Newsbot search thingy.

Hope this helps

Press-world.com - regularly indexed by Google News.

I also recommend membership to Emailwire - the site doesn't have the best design in the world but they have worked really hard to get my press releases syndicated on non-press release sites. It's a good value if you plan on releasing more than a few per year.

I think press releases (listed on Y and G news) are an important tool to help you get targetted traffic (esp. with the sandbox limiting the search referrals you'll get) - and I have found that referrals from press releases convert VERY well.

Thank you very much, I will try with all these , what kinda contents are prefered by such news agencies?

If I go for $499 under emailwire.com, will that be advisable?

Looking forward for your suggestion.

Thanks again

Hi there,

I can only speak for PR Leap, as one of the co-founders. Our free service does offer free Google News distribution (FYI ocassionally a news release does not make it to Google News most days all do).

As far as our review process, we are often told that we hold our members to a higher standard than the other leading free newswire but we do help every member get through the process - we read every submission.

Hi Guys,

We have had marketwire.com recommended to us - any good?
Also, for PRWeb.com - would you recommend paying $100 or $80? Have had both prices recommended.

Thx!

Not sure if I can say for sure which offers more bang for your buck, but, whatever level you're at, I advise adding $1.03 or some paltry amount - e.g., $81.03, $101.03, etc. In this way you end up above the vast majority of releases at that level :)

Great work with PRLeap! Best value in the biz.
