Hmmm. Interesting question. We confess that we HAVE been running about six days behind as of late -- but this was addressed on the home page with a disclaimer that we were running behind because of upgrades to the database. (But then, who ever reads that stuff, huh?)
As of this writing, all releases have been reviewed and posted.
Sorry for the inconvenience and confusion.
Press releases are viewed through multiple search engines including Google and Yahoo through their news syndication services. Additionally, select press releases are included in transmissions to PR professionals throughout the world when we conduct a private press release for clients.
For example, a customer might commission us to prepare a press release for them. Let's say it's to announce a brand new kind of software. We will write the press release for our client. Then, we'll send the press release to technology (in this case) editors that we have contacts with, via email and/or fax.
The email transmissions to media editors are sometimes augmented with links to recently-submitted PR items from passers-by to the site that we consider is worth consideration. This is why it's important to have your PR formatted accordingly. If there's no contact information, or it's just a lot of marketing hype then it's excluded.
The *all-languages* functionality is there as a default and reserved for future development. Currently, the site only supports English releases. We may release content in other languages, but not until we have appropriate support to review and mediate submissions in these languages.
We commit to a turnaround of 48 hours. Although over the last month (Sept 05) we've been averaging about 8-12 hours. It depends on the volume of submissions. Submissions are approved on a first-come/first-served basis -- with one exception:
Donations inevitably raises the priority of your submission in the queue. So, if we receive 100 releases, and you are the only person making a donation, then your release gets approved first. We also thoroughly review for proper editing, formatting of html code, etc.
Donations also guarantee monitoring by us to ensure placement on the front page. The benefit here is that your content will receive more hits and increasing your exposure. If a release does not receive enough attention, we'll requeue the release to improve the number of hits. All this is done manually, and is subject to editorial preference/review.
What THAT means is we STILL want quality stories. If you're just going to tell us about another male-enhancement drug, and think it'll get posted because you make a donation? Fuhgettaboutit. Make your stories worth reading, and we'll do everything in our power to get some attention to you.
Alternately -- if you have an article, but it doesn't fall into the "press release" category, then submit it under the opinions category.
Lastly (shameless self-promotion): If you have a product or service, and you would like to advertise next to it, make a donation and include the ad details in the notes section of PayPal.
This tool is a method to view news headlines from multiple sources all over the web. It also allows you to personalize your news preferences according to what you are interested in.
You can keep track of multiple companies, stocks, news categories, and other services. It also allows you to include RSS feeds in our directory, if you happen to have a site that publishes content frequently.
Well, we tried the photo attachment thingy a couple of times, and it just resulted in folks posting porn. So that was deleted. We recommend that you host the photo on a server somewhere of your own choosing, and link to it from your press release.
We may revise this in the future, however, with the increasing demand for video also influencing the drive for multivariate media formats.
Two possible reasons:
1. We reviewed the press release and we did not approve it for publishing, or
2. Your press release is still in the queue for review, and has not been published.
Press releases only appear in your account AFTER they have been published to the site.
Please send us details of the press release, along with the corrected version. We can implement the changes to the release by replacing the information that was originally submitted. Include date, title and items to be corrected.Back to top
The links are "contextually" served by outside ad networks. This is a common practice for any type of website that tries to monetize it's content - like our site.
Allow me to explain further:
GOOGLE - is a contextual ad serving network. We install their script on our site, the script "reads" the press release, then the script tries to find advertising that is relevant, and serves up some advertising content on the site. Google is one type of contextual ad serving system, but it is not the only one. Other systems that work similarly, and which we also implement on the site, are Adbrite, Amazon and Textlinkads.
The links that are inserted into the content are automatic, and through code that is integrated into the site. We do not serve the ads or links; rather, they are inserted by the advertising partner -- in this case Amazon.
The links also change periodically. So, depending the topic du jour, the links that exist today may no longer exist tomorrow. Conversely, new links may appear tomorrow that did not appear today. The net net of this all is that we have no control over that stuff.
The links in the stories is present on most of the free press release sites, and on a very high percentage of blogs and other similar content websites. It's VERY VERY common.
So, to conclude, the links that are added may be incorrect, but we have no control over it, it changes frequently, and we can't do anything about it except get rid of it entirely. Since these link "systems" also represent a percentage of revenue for us, we can't remove them unless more people start paying for their press releases...
Catch 22... y'know?
Believe it or not, the site is all about good content. Search words happen naturally if the story is written well. And as for images, we had problems in the past with adult spammers - so pictures are not allowed on this site. If you want to include images, simply link the images to your website. And then, if you want to enable that, you'll need to donate to enable htmlBack to top
You don't need a Paypal account to make a donation. Paypal is also a credit card processor. And, if you want to know if your press release was accepted, check back in your account in a day or so, and it will be listed under "My Account". Of course, since we get literally hundreds of submissions every single day, the more you do to make your press release stand out, the better your chances will be to have it posted.Back to top
Yes. Thanks for the notice. You paid for the upgrade using a different Paypal account name than the Account Name used on this site. So it was difficult to locate the press releases. However, they have been noted, and your press releases have been posted. Ads will also start running in approximately one day and will continue to drive traffic to your press release and your website for one year.
Thanks for your support!
Your PR was probably already posted. You can always resubmit for the $35.00 and then cancel your $4.99 monthly subscription. After that, send us and email detailing the two press releases and we will delete one of them to avoid duplicate content issues.Back to top
It was posted. But it depends on the search term that you use to find your story. To this end, MediaSyndicate is a Google authority site. Perform a search for your company name under Google News right now, and our press release is the only one that comes up for your company long after the PR submission.Back to top
