    Hi guys,
    I've learned some link building strategies here and i'm now putting them into practice.
    To make the links versatile, I want to start with press release links. However i'm not familiar with press release distribution and got some questions.

    All my sites target small niche keywords with month searches from 2000-7000.
    I've hired freelancers on fiverr to write press release articles for me.
    When I need to distributing them, I got some questions.

    Question 1:
    Some highest rated gigs offer press release distribution services to submit to over 50+ free press release sites. Is it dangerous to do this? Will G punish this for duplicate content or other issues?

    Question 2:
    G has said we should use nofollow links on press release sites, but when i check some popular press release sites, none of those sites add "nofollow" attributes to the links. Is this suitable for seo?

    Or anybody could give me directions on this?

    Any reply will be appreciated.

    :)

    If the press release is your initial source of links, you may do more harm than good. Press release links appear too quick, too many, and many shady sites copy the links so you end up with thousands of low quality links from bad neighborhoods. If you don't have a previously stable link profile, this may harm you.

    First of all if you are building links and not earning them, forget about what Google says.

    Secondly, press release will hardly do any good in terms of rankings. Use press release only for Reputation Management. IMHO.
