    I found some bhw service which provide press releases service with G news posting. However, I watched many post and no one said using press releases as link building strategy. Is it still worth to use press releases as tier 1?

    Thanks

    IMO, I don't think press release site links are having the substantial impact on SERP. But it can be considered as one of the link building strategies.

    For branding and dillution of anchor texts they still work perfectly fine. I've been still using them for new sites. Not even Google is that cuntish that they would do big deal about paid press releases.
