One of the most popular keyword optimization content types for SEOs and Public Relations professionals alike are press releases. As a news communication tool, the value of press releases has undergone changes. However, press releases provide a substantial amount of content to news search engines and can rank well in standard search engines like Google or Yahoo.
Multiple studies have documented that consumers and journalists are searching for and reading press releases. Optimizing press releases for a specific audience makes them easier to find and therefore, more of an asset for communicating news and attracting traffic to the company web site. As a result, it makes sense for marketing and PR practitioners alike to understand how to make press release content easier to find.
