Hello fellow Warriors,

I have a client who needs a press release distributed to France, the Netherlands, Germany and the UK. What PR service would you guys recommend?

    Hi, i found this on google...

    These PR distribution services are deemed both credible and SEO-friendly, which are the only inbound links we truly value.

    Credibility: We determined credibility by checking the PageRank and also their number of inbound links. This process eliminated most of the free sites in our list, leaving just six with respectable page rank of 5 and above. We think paid sites should offer more link credibility in addition to bonus features, so we slimmed down our list to PR 7 and above.
    Search Engine Optimization: We also took into account basic SEO functionality. These sites allow tagging, anchor text links, keyword data and other search elements. The paid sites typically allowed up to eight outbound links, whereas most free sites only allow one.
    Our Top Paid vs. Free Press Release Sites

    The differences between paid and free press release sites:

    Free press release sites are usually web-based and may or may not let you include photos, videos, or HTML formatted content.
    Paid press release sites usually have a press list that they will send your press releases to in addition to posting your release on their website and in their RSS feed. Many paid sites also offer extra SEO benefits like tagging, the option to edit your meta data, and grammar checking. They may also tweet your release to their lists depending on the level of service you choose. Robust analytics also come with the territory.
    Free press release sites

    I read recently about a test of 60 different free press release sites. The winner of their test was PRUrgent.com because it was the only one that got them in Google News. Unfortunately, that site has a PageRank of 3 so I didn’t include it in this list. It might be worth trying, though. The second place was OnlinePRnews.com, which I’ve added to the list this year because it has a rating of 5, and it also lets you include a live link.

    We found PRLog.org to be the best free press release site. It allows links, tagging and branding for free, but most importantly, it has the highest PageRank, unique traffic numbers and inbound links of its competitors. In our own comparative distribution tests, it also ranked higher than any other release.

    As mentioned, we only included free sites with a PageRank of 5 and above, because you are who you associate with when it comes to search optimization and inbound links. Their PageRank tells us about their SEO potential for any live links we put on their site.

    Site PageRank
    PRLog.org 6
    PR.com 6
    PR-Inside.com 6
    i-Newswire.com 5
    OnlinePRNews.com 5

    On Fiverr you can find press release services ranging from application of, to writing the press release itself, or both. I'd recommend looking on there.

    I have used a number, the most prominent being prweb i have used several times, with a coupon its about $199 per release. It helped a lot, but i'm not sure with recently algorithm changes if the value is still worth while.
