Free Press Release Distribution Roundup – 2020 Update

I get asked all the time if I can I provide a list of free press release submission companies. Despite being antithetical to my press release distribution[3] business, which relies on reaching media directly by email and dedicated newswire feeds to newsrooms nationwide, I thought it would be worth venturing into this murky world to give you a comprehensive list of free press release websites. I caution you to use at your own risk and to realize that a free press release is not a mechanism of public relations or PR, but an offshoot of search engine optimization (SEO) — with no proven track record of actually improving a website’s SEO.

In fact, getting real earned media is the only way to get lasting SEO benefit from press releases, which you cannot do with free press release sites. Read our Case Studies here: https://www.ereleases.com/case-studies/[4] (including this press release that generated media pickup and links from more than 100 media outlets[5]). Just imagine what links from Wall Street Journal, CNN International, Bloomberg, Harvard Business Review, etc., could do for your business (and SEO).

Criteria: When developing this list, I looked at several variables, such as: Alexa ranking, Page Rank, credibility indicators, and style. Sites that didn’t make the rank included: simple blogs, industry specific, dead sites (no recent press releases), and sites with broken navigation or ordering systems.

A trend I’ve noticed is that many past free press release websites are no longer free (but let you set up a free account to then pay). If you find any of these sites no longer offer free press release distribution, let us know by commenting below.
