First let me say I have been very pleased with VenomSEObot and Pro. Reinrein and Greengoblin are always there and they are working very hard to help us get the most success possible. That said I see press releases as a hard area of automation. The good thing about Venom is it is going to have the customizability needed to overcome some of the tough challeges these sites are putting up. Now to the report** Ok this report was created over a few days. After manually signing up for around 45 press release sites, creating profiles, and trying to post, did I mention manually? I think I have learned some things to overcoming the obstacle of getting press releases live quickly as possible. For anyone wondering the purpose of press release they are thus. 1. When you start a new business you may call the newspaper and pay for an ad to talk about your company. this is the same for web press releases. If you intend to utilize press releases you should not be making spam sites, autoblogs, etc. Press Releases are used if you are launching product, service, etc. 2. Out of over 40 sites I tested only 1 of them allows press release without manual review. Which after this report they will probably change it because it is the only one left and they will get pounded, pay the price or change. 3. Many sites are requiring more information. Many of these press release sites are actually wanting you to have phone, fax, address, etc. They want you to be a real business. 4. In addition to manual review most are also limiting amount of releases per account to 1 to 3 for free accounts then you must pay. 5. In part this is good news because it means that press releases will contain more authority, it just means if you want to use them you have to plan from the beginning to set up all the contact and really make it look like your site is an actual business. CPA products I think work good for this. Sometimes Venom email verify doesn't work 100%. Do not delete emails. Must verify within 24 hrs for some. Every email verification is not the same for every site. Sometimes you have to type in a verification code. The first list is the list of successes meaning venom was able to post. Only one was able to go live with out any type of review. ========================================================== www.seenation.com success www.addpr.com Venom does not show link.
