Is it worth or not to buy PRWEB to rank our website?

Heard that prweb is very popular website for content delivery and publishing where content writers can post their articles along with signature and backlinks.
Is it worth paying huge amount to prweb? Does it really helps to reach out website?

I saw some of our senior members of this forum also used it.

Man I just don't get you people, always looking for a way to cheat the system.

PRWeb is a press release website that has press releases, not articles. The press releases are to be NEWS WORTHY and again not articles.

IF you have a press release that offers great news then it will help greatly but NOT FOR BACKLINKS! It will help in getting attention of media which can drive a great amount of traffic to your business, online or offline.

Yes I have paid for their press release service before but it was not for SEO - It was actual news worthy content!

Like Ord has said, PRWeb's release guidelines state they can be used for "newsworthy" blasts - not general articles, or spam. You could end up paying for a release, and try to blast it out, but the system will hold it back, if you have not followed their release guidelines.

Yes, you can install a link every 100 or so words (if I recall correctly), but PRWeb was instructed to nofollowed the links a while back. So, if you were hoping for some PR to be passed to the target pages, you would be wrong. And, while you may get some residual traffic, I'd be remise if I said it would be "qualified", which it really won't be. Meaning, you might get some interest (depending on the topic and how well the piece is written), but I'd wager most will be curious traffic or bots.

There's all of that, and wait for the cost: At least $400 USD for each release, and if you want a wider distribution, it could cost more. A good release with distribution adds etc could cost $500 or more. That said, if you only plan on doing one release, save your money. Only try this out if you plan to do at least 4-6, to gain any traction whatsoever.

At the heart of the matter - if you are not a good writer, and do not employ someone to write your release - you will be wasting your money.

2 cents.

Thanks for the detailed information, definitely it will be helpful for me.
But some of my senior SEO special friend said that "it is a blunt fact that back links does matter. So called white collar SEO specialists are getting backlinks from paid article or news publishing websites"
Was he correct or wrong?
If he was wrong then coming to your case, you also promoted your website in PR web and placed your link on your home page. How do we understand that, since your are saying back links are bad? Just asking

Spam backinks are bad - blunt FACT!

Natural backlinks are what Google is after. Now if you do a 'press release' that is 'news worthy' and a media site (I do mean a real media site) picks it up and decides to publish it then it is considered a natural backlinks because it was not paid for and not built by you.

You pay PRWeb for "distribution" but there is no promises any media will pick it up - that's why it must be News Worthy!

In many posts you are strongly opposing members that "working to get back links using article writing, guest blogging, blog commenting and other traditional SEO practices are wrong. If anyone does it's useless." So getting backlinks from traditional practices is wrong in your perspective? Or it is acceptable when you get back links in other ways like PR web or reciprocal links (like you did on your web page)?

Trying to build links is not natural (look up Google's guidelines).

In terms of PRWeb, where a person pays for the above average release product, links are acceptable. It's the way it's been for a decade or longer. However, Google stepped in a little while ago and advised the Press Release services to "nofollow" links, which they did, so people wouldn't be trying to use these services for link building.

Google has also devalued links when done for the purpose of link building (see my first point above) in the form of forum posting, reciprocal links, article submission, guest posting etc.

These things in the paragraph above are all things that most people that know absolutely nothing about proper SEO, and are pretending to be an SEO try to do, and result in an epic fail. Google knows all about these spammy things the wannabees are doing and as such, are doing their best to circumvent these junk so-called SEO wannabees.

But - the ill-informed and SEO wannabee's are still trying to build links this way and are spamming up the internet with their junk, all the while thinking it's link building.



I've always said building links is not good SEO.

I've also always said, building good content and working it is good.

If you can't figure out what I've said here, you are beyond help.

I will not deny that PRWeb is a way to get mass of backlinks and promotion. However, If you use this method. You will get punished ASPS.

Try to avoid it.
