    Press release - PLEASE help me out

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Anthony James Barnett, Jan 22, 2008.

    I've just subscribed to a free press release.

    They suggest that a link be put on my web and anywhere else I can, because the greater the number of unique visitors to my release, the greater the chance of Google news picking it up. PLEASE, PLEASE, help me out by just clicking and visiting, you don't even have to read. Just visit PLEASE.

    Grandfather of Eight writes steamy novel

    Many thanks
    Anthony

    I'm moving this to the Lounge because:

    1. It will have more visibility there
    2. It isn't really a writing issue where you are seeking advice or debate.

    Congratulations on getting published!

    i'm curious... how can one 'subscribe' to a 'press release'... free or not?...

    as far as i know, from many decades of having written/issued them, a press release is something you send out, not something you can subscribe to...

    I wondered about that too. My guess is the site makes its money from visit counts through ad hosting. so the press releases are how they draw peoiple to the site.

    maybe they just figured if they could get the TRP running high, it'd catch press noticing.

    dream on!... reporters and editors don't have time [or the inclination] to go trolling for stuff people want them to report on for free...

    I agree. Sounds dubious to say the very least.
