I have read many posts on this forum about importance of press releases for an overall off-page SEO strategy. Making a quick search query in Google I found a list of free PR sites (posted below). What PR sites do you prefer to use and why? Some of them do not allow backlinks w/o subscribing for a paid option. I guess, there is not much use of those. Anyway, what are you favorite PR sites to submit a press release. Thanks.

  • free-press-release – Pagerank 5 / Alexa 3,547 – Not a great looking site, but it has high traffic and a good Alexa ranking. Also, you can place your banners on the press release submitted, pointing to your site. Only the paid service has better ranking and SEO benefits. Easy press release distribution for free, more features for paid accounts.
