List of Free Press Release Sites

I have updated the list of free press release distribution sites that I use. Some formerly free sites started charging a fee, some were too annoyingly finicky and quirky and buggy so I removed them rather than tear my hair out every time I wanted to submit a press release, and then I found a few new ones to replace old ones that I removed from my list.

And if you know of any good free press release sites that are not on this list – please let me know!

These are all sites where I have successfully created accounts and submitted press releases – there are a couple of dozen sites where I spent a lot of time trying to create an account or trying to submit a press release and was not successful. Needless to say, I left those sites off the list.

So these are the ones that actually have worked for me.

Are free pr sites worth your time? Based on my experience and my clients’ experience, I would say most definitely.

Advantages of free press release sites: They are a fast, free, easy, way to get your message and your company name all over the internet. Some of them are fairly high page rank which passes along some good link juice. I’ve gotten my clients 6 of the top 10 Google listings on the front page of Google, for the keywords we selected, using free press release sites. (There’s never a guarantee of this, of course; Google does what Google wants.)

Disadvantages: Many (but not all) of these sites require you to create an account, which is time consuming and tedious the first time around. Think half a day, at least, of sitting there entering in all your information, waiting for the confirmation email to show up, clicking on that link so you can enter your press release, etc. Also, these sites don’t allow you to use anchor text, although you can of course put your website’s URL in them, so you still get backlinks. And most of them don’t allow you to include pictures or video; for that you have to use a site like www.prweb.com.

All of the free sites have options for you to pay amounts ranging from $3 to hundreds of dollars for instant placement rather than waiting a few days, better exposure, HTML links in your press release, etc. I have not yet experimented with those to see what the results would be.

So, without further ado, here is the NEW, UPDATED list of free pr sites that I am currently using:

    • Thank you for the list.  I asked this question on another site the other day but did not get a response.  I"m not quite sure where to ask this question except on a site such as this.
      I'm getting my first press release ready and I'm not sure if I am supposed to submit it to one site or to numerous sites.  I thought we were only allowed to submit EACH press release to one site.  But, I"m working on my press release at prlog.org and it shows that you can get either a Free press release submission, an Exclusive (Free) or Premium which you have to pay for.
      When I hover above Exclusive, it shows that Exclusive is for company news posted exclusively OR first on their site.
      So that leads me to believe that we are allowed to submit EACH press release to numerous press release sites.
      I just don't want to do anything that will penalize me anywhere.
      Does anyone know?
      Thanks in advance!

    • I submit my clients' press releases to a list of 25 different sites. It appears all over Google. When I check months later, the press releases are STILL appearing in multiple places all over Google.  I've done this hundreds of times. There is nothing wrong with submitting your press release to multiple sites.
