    You have understand that PR mainly is not for seo purpose.

    But here are some advantages:

    - Natural links from multiple outside sources.
    - High-quality, authoritative sources.
    - Opportunities for keyword linking and name recognition.
    - Immediate visibility and referral traffic.
    - Online Reputation Management.

    Ofcourse you need newsworthy pr.

    Hello,


    Press release have a tendency to convey more weight in Googles eyes.
    Unless you present a connection on your press discharge its simply speculating recreations in the matter of why it didn't do what you need.


    Press release were valuable keeping in mind the end goal to help "dilute" over enhanced backlink profiles when Penguin turned out.


    Regardless, toward the day's end - individuals ought to be composing press discharges in light of the fact that they have something that is apparently newsworthy - not only in light of the fact that they need to rank for "payday credits in liverpool".


    In the event that your press release has significant catchphrases and connections, the streamlining's advantages you can obtain from deliberate press release accommodation are impressive.

    Good luck!

    Press Releases will ALWAYS be good for SEO, no matter what. Unless Google closes down, it will always be good. It's "white hat" and it's a completely natural way to get links / citations. Obviously it needs to be done the proper way, you can't go create a brand new "News" site and post your press release on it 500 times that links to the same site...

    Well press release now not giving any jump in ranking. Press release do drive traffic based on your content.
    But SEO depend mainly on your content, if any journalist thinks its newworthy and post in main page of any newssites then its worth both for SEO and direct traffic.

    But other press release are posted pages not visited deep inner pages. so your link juice is very less much like forum profile. How i know, I had access to $5k prweb annual plan and posted like 2 pr per day and most are posted for SEO purpose only. Our return on posting is bad even for low competition keywords

    Press release is always great for diluting your backlink profile.. If your content is news worthy, you would get quality traffic too..

    Can't go wrong with Press Releases. The main objective would be to hopefully get this newsworthy release picked up by legit news websites with high PR.

    You can make it a part of your SEO strategy. Its good for brand awareness, diversity as well as an authority boost for your website overall. But you cannot rely exclusively upon it for rankings on Google.
