    Which is the better option for press releases? I don't care about getting noticed by the media, and I don't expect a lot of people will be searching news sites for my keywords - I'm in it strictly for the backlink value.

    EmailWire seems to have a slightly better reputation as far as SEO goes, but I can't figure out if there's any reason for that. Their best (cheapest) package is $99/month, and it requires a 1 year contract. It does allow for unlimited PRs, though.

    SBWire has 3 options, none of which require a contract - $30 for 25 PRs/month, $60 for 50, or $100 for unlimited. As of right now, I'm pretty sure I could work with the 25 package, maybe 50 at some point.

    So what's better? Is emailwire really worth 2-3x the cost, plus the commitment? Or are they really both about the same? I really wish EmailWire had a free trial like SBWire - it would make it so much easier to compare them.

    Actually, somebody out there has to have the emailwire subscription. I'd pay you to submit one for me, as a test. Just a thought.

    How many sites are you looking to get PRs submitted for? If just one, there's no need to sign up, just pay someone for a submission. Actually I can probably hook you up on that. PM me if interested.

    I've got several, actually. I was using a service that charged $12 for submission to both wires, but it shut down, so now I'm looking into doing it myself - I'm planning to do a lot more PRs than I had in the past. I'll PM you about submitting a couple for me. Anybody else who has access to EmailWire and may want to submit one or two, feel free to PM me and let me know what it would run me. Thanks.

    Is there any good manual and free press release submission sites that are worth it?

    I've seen a lot of discussion about that. The best I can tell is that you should treat most free PR sites like a free article directory - a backlink, but nothing super powerful.

    I believe emailwire is a better option, if you can afford 1 year advance and $200 account creation fee. :)
