    It's just one of the ingredients when it comes to link building. Is a matter of choice whether you want to blend it in or not. In my opinion it can be favorable.

    Yes and it works well with my new websites. Writing a press release about a new business or product is normal of traditional promotion.

    Press releases are great as long as it isn't keyword stuffed, only linked to your homepage, or less than 400 words (word count isn't important, the percentage of keywords to content is imo and 300 words isn't classy).

    Short answer: Yes, if you use them "good". I believe in you. Go with your gut and send them out. ;)

    Should work. If the distribution hits the right people and has good convincing copy, might as well help a video go viral.

    Most press release links are nofollow so it will not really give you much of a rank boost IME. And lets be real, nobody really reads them anyway haha. But the one thing they are good for is giving your link profile some legitness and diluting anchor text ratios down if you've gone too far.

    PR is still working. But you have to build high-quality PR which helps to increase your ranking

    Press releases service is good one. Press releases probably have little SEO value on their face to support your website’s content and increased organic traffic. And press release service is mostly used to create brand visibility.

    It wont help much in ranking but it will help you diversify your link profile and also you will get lots of traffic in it.

    This is my opinion. It gives you nice diversity with the other crap you build but dont' think it helps too much. I don't think the traffic is much value though.
    And they are a bit pricey $60+, so it's a tough call for what it does.

    what if I buy a PR service which offers about 300 PR submission? will that too much sudden links can harm my site?
