    Awesome blog post.
    I was looking for some good press release distribution for my Architects website “https://architects4design.com/ ” at Bangalore that’s when i came across your website which had lots of informative content on a single blog post.

    This helped to plan my budget for publishing on particular sites. Thank you again for writing such wonderful blog posts.

    Thank you,
    Architect Vijay

  2. Paul says:

    You forgot one of, in my opinion, the best companies out there, EIN Presswire. They have been around for a long time, they’ve got some of the best placements, a very intuitive interface, and their prices are very competitive: $49.95 per release or $249 for 5 releases, $399 for 10 releases plus 2 free, or $999 for 50 releases. I definitely recommend them! https://www.einpresswire.com/

  7. Sarwar Indian says:

    These are all helpful PR sites for better SEO results, thanks.

  8. Neeru says:


    Does anyone have an idea about abnewswire.com though? It’s targeted media distribution is very reasonable even the web , but I am not sure if it’s any good. I would appreciate your feedback.


  9. Brian says:

    As Alex mentioned, there is PRUnderground.com, which is a Google News source and distributes to 15+ social media sites as well for $20-$39/release. Pagerank is 4.

    Just tested in August by Forbes (http://www.prunderground.com/pr-underground-mentioned-in-forbes-article-on-the-current-state-of-press-releases/0026236/)

    It is NOT a place to get direct press coverage, but is good for getting your news into Google and social media at an affordable price.

  10. Anonymous says:

    Just wondering if there are any new or better PR distribution sites that have come along since this article was written. Thanks!

  11. Nancy Scruggs says:

    This is a topic that\’s close to my heart… Best wishes! Exactly where are your contact details though?

  12. Sesli says:

    Thank you Mastergoogle

  13. Gary says:

    We use pressport.co.uk – great little service.

  14. alex says:

    Well detailed post about most popular Press Release sites which will be helpful for all PR submitters and publishers.

  15. @Jitendra Shukla
    Press releases are a great strategy for SEO.

  16. Kirk says:

    Pressat is a good PR site, not free but middle priced.

  17. Anonymous says:

    Lorrie Walker, do you think that these press release sites are helpful in business promotion and gaining traffic and business? I personally think that now press release sites are not helpful as link-building and marketing trends have changed.

  18. Robert Pitman says:

    Magnificent post. I actually like what you\’ve acquired here, really like what you are stating and the way in which you say it. You make it enjoyable. I cannot wait to read far more from you. This is actually a tremendous website.

  19. Jitendra Shukla says:

    Awesome job Lorrie. The post was really nice and all site are useful for me, I analyze and submit my PR on them and find good results in terms of syndication .
    Thanks for sharing Lorrie.

  20. Anonymous says:

    Nice list, many thanks, I find that pointing additional back-links at the release can also help its ranking. Cheers

  21. Lily Herrington says:

    Having made use of a press release submission to showcase many of my internet sites I always make sure that I utilize the well-known newswires to circulate my press release.

    I\’ve utilized the free press release distribution websites but you really do get what you pay for. A press release is too mighty a marketing tool to be skimpy on. A paid service like PR Buzz, SBWire,EmailWire etc. not only give your brand outstanding exposure but will also give strong back links and laser targeted traffic. That is why I continually utilize a press release the moment my website goes live and let it work its magic!

  22. Samuel says:

    Great article. I’m a total press release noob and your article has enlightened me greatly. We are always coming out with new fax broadcast and fax blast services to offer to the business to business community but have never done press releases before. Now that I have read your fine post we will be doing press releases too. Thank You Very Much!!

  23. Ane Howard - Founder says:

    I need to make one correction. We allow 4 hyperlinks in the body of the release and one in the contact field, plus one image, and one YouTube vid.

    Thank you again!

  24. Ane Howard - Founder says:

    Thank you for the mention of our newswire RushPRNews.com. We\’ve been around since 2005 and constantly striving to better our services. We are not a backlink builder but surely can help our clients gaining exposure. Also, our social share package is unique to us.
    Thank you again and don\’t hesitate to ask us for our PR coupons!


  25. karl lawrence says:

    Nice, thanks for sharing this. Will it really help me to get an increase in the back links to my sites?

    Best Regards,

  30. Christopher Simmons says:

    You notably forgot to mention Send2Press.com,. which was the first newswire to promote SEO with PR (check archive.org); and offers both notable online placement, anchor link support, hand-submit to social media, and exclusive placement in the Neotrope News Network of sites (e.g., CaliforniaNewswire.com etc.).

  31. Ada says:

  33. Makeitmindful says:

    Hi Lorrie, this is one of the more comprehensive list of press release vendors i have seen. Thank you so much for aggregating this list and also including pricing, which seems to be what a lot of other site aggregators are missing. It\’s also important to note some of the larger press release vendors have package deals that can be economical when spread over multiple clients. This is a great deal for marketing agencies similar to ours. -makeitmindful

  34. mario says:

  35. SYNERGOS says:

    Hi, Thanks for the list. I wanted to know if I can submit on all of these website from India.

  36. Dave says:

    Appreciate the work you put in to create this list. But do you use all of these sites? I have an account with PRBuzz, and they do a pretty good job distributing my press releases.

    I also see very often in Google SERPS prweb pages, so I guess it is worth using them to publish a PR. It has a nice PR as well, so some link juice will pass to your site.

  37. here says:

    I never done press release marketing or distribution but now after read your post and got these awesome source of press release marketing. I heard a lot about the importance of press release that it is very helpful to enhance our online presence and to get good business.

  144. Kim says:

    Hi Ali,

    Great post! Thanks for sharing your research.

    I am wondering about Webwire. I\’ve seen a few people recommending them. But it seems to cost $20 to get proper results.

    If you have an opinion about it, I would love to hear it.


  145. Sean Burrows says:

    @Ali Husayni
    I\’m certainly not looking to get something for nothing. We\’re both businessmen in the SEO business. Contact me. Let\’s work something out.


  146. Ali Husayni says:

    @Sean Burrows
    I\’m going to write a full description of our latest strategy on press releases/articles and kind of give-away our secret. 🙂 Stay tuned.

  147. Sean Burrows says:

    @Ali Husayni
    While my company has been using PRWeb for a while I am actually surprised about the comments you made on PRWeb. What do you recommend for a press release strategy? There seem to be some pretty good free sites you have listed. I\’m curious on your thoughts. We have an SEO team that writes and manually distributes articles for our clients and it works really well for building authority for and rankings for targeted keywords. Would you suggest hitting all 20 sites you list for Press Releases?

  148. Ali Husayni says:

    @Sean Burrows
    Thanks Sean… The list was updated and we added PRWeb.com. I removed the note. I have a bigger comment above about PRWeb.com. Nevertheless, it\’s worth having it on the list. Some people may find it useful.

    Not to mention, the links you get from the other sites that PRWeb sprays your press release out to. For example, I noticed that earthtimes.org picked up a press release I did last week with PRWeb.com.

  150. Sean Burrows says:

    Thanks for your article, it is really informative. My only question is, why do you actually list PRWeb.com in the list, and then say at the end of the article that you didn\’t list it. Typo? Error? Or have you updated the article because PRWeb is worth the money now?

    I\’d be interested to know your reasoning behind not including PRWeb on your list above. Does their site lack anything that is needed for it to be a good posting site?

    1. Ali Husayni says:

      Not at all. PrWeb was designed for the purpose of SEO and they have many promotional tools, programs. However, the \”link-juice\” coming from their site is less than most of the other sites listed above (and their SEO package is minimum $199).

      Let me further explain. SEO companies post press releases on distribution sites to get \”back-links\” to their clients\’ Web sites. Each back-link coming from an authoritative Web site helps further the SEO campaign. However, the more a site links to other sites, each link will have less of a value (link-juice). For example if site A links to site B and that\’s the only site that it links too, it is using all of its \”voting\” power to promote site B. Instead, if it links to site B, C, D, and E, it is dividing its voting power to four and is using each portion for each site.

      PRWeb has a Google PR7. Which means the links coming from it ought to have high value. However, it is overused by hundreds of SEO and non-SEO companies on a daily basis. Therefore, the link-juice is reduced to a level that it is now almost worthless. I did some tests with PRWeb during summer of 2009 and in comparison with the other big players, I got almost no results from the posted press releases.

      It is interesting to note that a sales rep. and a so called \”SEO expert\” from PRWeb called me a few days later and wanted to see how my experience was with them. I told him that I would never post anything else with their site and explained why. He tried to argue with me and sell me on the high Page Rank they have. Make a long story short, he promised to discuss the issue with his supervisor and get back with me and guess what… he never did.

      Your money will go further along with other sites listed here. That\’s all.

      I hope I explained this clearly.
