SEO Self-Help: Post Your Press Releases with Links

One of the keys to good ranking in search engines (search engine optimization) is having links from external websites to your website. A technique to create such links is to post your own press releases on external websites. To help your SEO, the press releases must have links to your website.

To get the most from this technique:

  • Make sure the link text for each link to your website uses important keywords that you want to be visible for.
  • Make sure links point to the most appropriate page within your site (not just your home page)
  • Use more than one press release site

There are many available free press release distribution websites. The following are generally well regarded. However, the terms of these sites are always subject to change, so be sure to verify the terms and conditions for any news release distribution site  before you click submit.
