PR Newswire Reviews:



Erika Gimbel -

I would regularly recommend PRWeb over PRNewswire because you get much better SEO tools regardless of the cost, which happens to be much, much less. I would only recommend PR Newswire if a client was announcing national breaking news, or the client was a multinational corporation and people might be surprised the corporation can’t afford PR Newswire.

Cheril N. Clarke -

A year or so I tried PR Newswire (which was tremendously expensive) and got no real pick-up. Granted, that was promoting a theatrical event whereas my latest release was promoting a niche children's book. -

PR Newswire managed to include the comma in the YouTube URL which corrupted the URL and made it not work. (Curiously, they didn't have the same problem on the Yahoo! link which also had a comma after it.) The biggest problem with PR Newswire's web press releases is that most of the sites that pick them up don't manage to preserve the link at all.
