Press Release Tip #1 - Google Pagerank of 4 or higher. A high pagerank doesn’t necessarily result in more traffic, but the higher the pagerank the more valuable the inbound links. PR Sites with low pagerank will give you little to no benefit and may even have a negative impact because they might have been blacklisted for spamming. You can check any sites pagerank at www.popuri.us.

Press Release Tip #2 - Search Engine Optimization. Most press release sites are designed to allow you to optimize your press release for search engines using tags, anchor text links, header tags, etc. If you’re not sure, look on the PR website for a statement about press releases being optimized for search engines (SEO).

Press Release Tip #3 - Don’t use NoFollow tags. Nofollow tags are inserted into website code to stop the search engine spiders from following the links. If the spiders can’t follow the links in your press release, there is no benefit.

Press Release Tip #4 – Lots of Inbound Links. The more inbound links they receive, the more respect they will earn and the higher they will rank in search engines. The higher they rank in search engines, the more visible your press release will become, and the more traffic you will receive.

Be sure to post all press releases on your website. To attract attention from journalists, bloggers and key individuals within your niche, distribute your press release on social media sites like Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. A well written press release is one of the easiest and quickest forms of Internet marketing.
