25+1 Free Press Release Distribution Sites

Some weeks ago I published a post on using seo friendly press releases to gather backlinks.

If you missed that post, by all means step over and read it.

It covers all you need to know about writing SEO friendly press releases, even going into details about how to get ideas for press releases.

This post is the sequel to that, and covers where to publish your press releases once you have written them.

Find below a list of 25+ free press release distribution sites. I have personally tested all these sites and can gaurantee that your press releases will be published:

    Great list. I really enjoyed the associated A-Z post on press releases.

  2. Clonazepam says:

    Excellent list..
    already use most of em event tho some of em doesn’t accept free email such as gmail and yahoo mail also doens’t allow anchor text links. Would be appreciated if u could share PR list that can accept free email and we can put anchor text links..

    • Yeremi Akpan says:

      In my experience most of those sites accept anchor text and free emails with the exception of about three or so.

      But then, in the case of those three, you could just leave a direct link back to your site…

  5. A really excellent list. I have had several ‘cold’ calls from ‘marketeers’ who all wanted lots of money for ‘press releases’ etc. but as far as I can see, the guys on your list do the job for free (or rather enable you to do the job yourself). Two additional great things about this post are 1) That you have actually tried them yourself, and 2) that the list is up to date and not scraped from a 2007 post. Great work – much appreciated.

  6. Open Source says:

    Good Share,all these free press release websites are high Pr sites?Is there any automated software to do this job?

    Thank you for sharing this valuable list. At first I thought that PR had a monoply on the market – especially after reading a few articles stating that FREE press release sites don’t connect with the media (e.g., newspaper, mags, reporters, journalists) and are a waste of time.

    I’m preparing a news release; but thought to explore release options using the Internet. Will come back to your site when ready to actually send out our notice. Wishing you continued success!!

    Connected by the written word,

    Thanks for the press release list. You said that some PR press releases submit to Google News and Yahoo news. Can you please explain brief on that. I just need to know how to submit out content to google news and yahoo news

    • Yeremi Akpan says:

      Hi Rajandran,
      Thanks for the comment!

      Yes, some PR sites submit to Google News and Yahoo News. You just have to check their service terms to ensure that they do.

      Alternatively, you can search in Google for PR services that publish to Google news.
