    Honest question. I see them being mentioned a lot and that you should get a few especially if youre making an authority site and thats exactly what im after. So what are press releases and whats the correct way of utilizing them for ranking?

    They are just what they say they are, press releases by companies on new products, launches, and other announcements. Read this guide to writing them here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...805909-tips-writing-strong-press-release.html

    The links come from posting the press release on (typically) paid press release networks like prnewswire.com that shout them loud and proud. You benefit because (like all external SEO) you placed a backlink. A good PR also yields you traffic.

    If you don't know what you're doing then consider a service for it here on BHW. Or research it more.

    Any services you've personally tried? Thing is I don't have much to invest and I suspect they're expensive

    See many people told here that PR is dead now but once you will see on its metrics when link is builded then realize that can be very effective if sharing will be good.
