Massive press release submissions on one niche

20 replies
Hi,

I am submitting 100 press release on around 10-15 keywords (some keywords just have words rearranged and are similar) but only on one niche. Is there any risk of ban on all press release by any website if I keep writing only on 1 niche but for different keywords.

Can I create multiple login id for submissions? Because I have seen that many companies also employ PR agencies to submit press release.

Content is always unique. no spinning and most press release get approved easily.

Any risk of ban on 1 id will remove all press release (I assume all press release also get removed after login id ban on article website)

    This is interesting. One might deduce you are an expert on press releases, looking at your sig file. You don't know better than this? 100 press releases all what, pointing to one site? Do you really have 100 different and relevant news stories?

    You're muddying the waters and farking it up for everyone. Stop it.

        Hi,
        Thanks for your reply.
        I am doing bulk article submissions but have not press release submissions in bulk. So just wanted to know if anyone has done that. because I have not read T&C of all press release sites.

        Also, news is meant to be fresh. So I don't know what will be consequences of this. Also I have seen many press release of a company from many pr agencies and different id. so I think it might be safe to send press release from multiple id.

        What do you say?

      That was the worst reply I ever got. I am a software developer by profession and YES I am an expert in press release publishing but I have not done bulk press release submission before. Warriorfourm is a great resource to get great (and free ) consultation before starting any kind of marketing campaign. Some people have been exceptionally helpful to me. especially Alexa Smith. Now I get consultation from them before starting any marketing.

      And if you do not have anything good to share, then please DO NOT REPLY.
      YOU ARE NOT INVITED at threads that I start and I won't reply to your threads.
      So now on. DO NOT talk to me if I am not talking to you.
      you get that????

        Soft, first off he gets that. Secondly, it's a public forum and he has every right to come in here and call you out if you seem misleading in any way. Plainly, you should not have a link in your sig touting expert status in something you are asking for advice on. Even if that's not really the entire case, I'd certainly advise losing the link in your signature until you have all the information you require. Bruce is being nicer to you than most would actually, he's really trying to help you by giving you a heads up that such an incongruous thing can make you look bad to potential customers and to peers here at Warrior Forum.

        Plainly, you should use this forum to help you, but not at the expense of what you are trying to accomplish by being here. So - temporarily at least - maybe just take the link out of your signature until you have all the answers you need to hone in and make your product the best it can be. Because while you are here to improve what is likely a very solid and good product (I like the idea myself) others will look at your sig + your question on an identical subject and think you are being hypocritical (even when you're not). Personally I know that you are not, because I've talked to you in other threads. You seem cool and seem like you're the genuine article.

        Just sayin' Soft, and only here to try and help you mate. Don't take offense if and when others come flying in here and tear you a new one because of the lack of continuity between your question and your touted expertise. Be cool my brother. But again, lose the link until you're solid with the advice you need.

    if you go for a paid press release service and call the company to ask if it is ok then I don't think there should be any problem. I've never done that before but rather than asking on the forums, I would get a QUICK ANSWER from the company itself

    Press release are really powerful tools of promotion

    It all depends on what's your intention for the PR. I believe Bruce was taking PR in it's original context, ie getting exposure from news sites when they choose to republish your PR.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but from what you've asked, I believe you're using PR as a means for SEO and obtaining backlinks, targeting your main KWs.

    In the first scenario, you'd be submitting to high quality PR sites. I'm not sure if they would appreciate you submitting multiple PR unless it's newsworthy.

    In the second scenario, those secondary PR sites are not really concerned about the newsworthiness of your PR. I'm not saying they'll take any crap, but a decent PR with some story in it will pass through.

    HTH.

      Press release sites is another way to generate traffic to your site.

      One of my mentor told me about that, its a high authority sites.

      A site that stays for a long time. May be they can give you long term
      backlinks every time you post your link to some press release sites.

    As another poster stated - it depends what you are trying to achieve. If you are trying to get traffic to your site through these press releases then submitting a whole lot at once is not best practice.

    If you are looking for seo then I am sure there is a way, but really, doesn't that just become article marketing. The whole point of a press release is it's ability to be picked up and syndicated by many sites in your niche IF, and ONLY if, you actually have something newsworthy to share.

    I think there are better ways to build links to your site than doing this. It goes against what press releases are designed for and I'm thinking, and hoping, most reputable PR sites would have some form of alarm bell that rings when someone attempts something like this. At the end of the day, it also ruins their (PR site) reputation if the news that is coming out of their site is not newsworthy and spins of other press releases that have already been submitted.

      Yeah you're right!

      Let's just say, do the ethical way.

      Good catch. Practically every single time that I have outsourced a press release writing, I have ended up getting a press-release-like-formatted article that is areticle-directory-worthy but not pressworthy.

        Yeah, a lot of people don't really understand the distinction between the two. Many people think press releases are just articles submitted to a different type of website - it's not the case.

        You should only be using press releases if you indeed have something newsworthy to share - and that doesn't include announcing your new ebook for sale - that is not newsworthy. Unless of course you can put a twist on it and turn it into something newsworthy.

      I agree with you. but I have tons of article submitted on same topic. It helps in google ranking. ideally one should only submit one useful article on one niche and not reiterate that again in other articles. but we all do that so why not pr? Also many reputed pr sites do read the pr and reject those which are not so newsworthy and also do not allow anchors and even clickable url. for example: 1888pressrelease has no link anywhere in the pr submitted (in free mode). that is why there has been less spamming in pr domain. also there is no mass pr submission software and submisions on pr sites are generally 2-3 times more time consuming more than article site. so these factors keep spammers away a bit.
      however, I feel that when you have a pr written in a newsworthy way (may not actually have breaking news in it) and not in an informative or article way, it can be submitted like we do article marketing even if the news has same content overall but in different words. Many may disagree but my only point here is that when article can be done in this way then why not pr?

        Just because it can be done does not mean it should. If you have to go to those lengths to try and get people to your site or to try and help the ranking of your site, then obviously what you are offering or trying to sell is not very popular.

        PR sites are meant for press releases. If idiots go and start using them for articles then it will eventually ruin it for the people who use them properly. A lot of people who run websites or write in magazines subscribe to PR sites so they can get the latest news and content they can write about in their media. If they start getting a stream of useless press releases like you are suggesting then they will get fed up and go elsewhere for their news. So whoever else is using that site the correct way for proper press releases will be penalized because of your stupid actions.

          So the question is what is a newsworthy content. for me a new client added to my business is very newsworthy and I can publish 2 pr on it weekly for it if I want to and no one can stop me. for others only a billion dollar merger and acquisition is newswrothy. so its all about your perception.

            Newsworthy is something that you could see a magazine or newspaper publishing. Adding a new product or staff member is not newsworthy and is not something a press release should be used for.

            Do you understand why they are called PRESS RELEASES?

            They are to inform press of important news or events - not trivial stuff that no one cares about. You say it's all about perception. Well your perception is a little tainted because it is your business you are writing about - that doesn't mean anyone else cares.

            And you're right, you can do whatever you want - no one is going to stop you. So why did you bother asking the question in the first place if you were just going to do it anyway? It's not a clever idea if that's what you are thinking - it's just stupid.

            This whole thread here is a GREAT advertisement for your business... NOT!

    I think the technicality of the word PR should not be debated at all.

    Taken as it is, WillR is correct that PR are only for newsworthy press releases, not just another form of article marketing.

    However, due to the changing landscape in SEO, there are quite a number of sites which call themselves PR sites that accept press releases for SEO purposes, and not so much of distribution. Whether they deserve to be called PR sites is not the point.

    A genuine PR submitter would not bother with those sites, and will only submit to quality press release sites.

    Another person whose intention is for SEO purposes would not even bother to submit to quality PR sites (chances are it might get rejected or not picked up) but instead target these second tier PR sites that suits their objectives.

    In both instances, both are correct.

    Different cuts for different people for different purposes.

    As for whether is it ethical, it's not for me to decide, nor would I argue. I ain't gonna impose my etchics/values on someone else. Different people have different values. If ethics are taken strictly as it is in my context, 99% of the salesletter (especially in the IM niche would have failed big time!).

      Totally agree with you. The first advice that I got when I started SEO was "Content is the king". Now my stress here is to create great and appealing content and then distribute it as much as possible. In article marketing my articles are getting 20-25% clickthrough rate on hyperlinks and urls in the submitted articles. So I believe, if the quality of content is good, people will read it.

      And as I type this post, the top 10 pr sites first of all do not allow any links, and secondly 6 of them have rejected my pr while some 70-80 pr and news sites that come after those top 10 are publishing my pr and out of those 30-40 allow either anchor or clickable url. So I think this works for me. but it is much difficult than article marketing as I can submit only catchy and fresh content and cannot submit more than 2 in a week. also it takes 4-5 times more time to submit press release than articles.
