    Does anyone know of a site or syndication area where I can backdate press releases? I have a few old press releases I would like to use for ORM purposes, but, given the client is new, his press releases didn't make it onto the web at the time of release. Please let me know (PM or post back). Thanks!

    Since, press release is considered as news, it's not possible to predate the submission. If it's allowed, then people who want to write a news about something they came across by seeing the news released by someone can manipulate the date and the cheater can tell the world that he was the 1st to spread the news, though it was by someone else.

    Thank you for the response! I feared that was the case. I have been in SEO since the dawn of time and have never seen a backdating service, along the same lines I assumed any that do do it have already been flagged by the SEs. Thank you again though for the insight.
