Include Keywords Within The Press Release Once you’ve identified a keyword, write out a rough draft of your press releases, making sure to include the keyword throughout your release. The keyword should be included, at minimum, in the header of your press releases, one to three times in the body of the release, and at least once in the “About” section of your press releases.
Remember To Hyperlink Thoughtfully For press release services that allow you to include hyperlinks within the release, make sure to hyperlink from the keyword you identified instead of using non-optimized keywords like “click here.” While not all press release services allow html or hyperlinking, most will allow you to at least include a link back to your site in a resource or contact box, or once in the “about” section.
Consider Purchasing The Upgrade Option If presented with the opportunity to upgrade, in most cases, do so. Upgrades generally offer you the opportunity to specify the anchor text of a hyperlink or in some cases, include a hyperlink that a free package doesn’t allow. Not all upgrades are created equally, though. Consider the page rank, traffic volume, trust factors, and cost when determining whether to upgrade or not.
Distribute Your Release to a Variety of Services When submitting press releases for link building purposes, don’t submit to just one service – instead submit to a variety. Some press release sites will check to make sure that your release is unique, however, so make sure to distribute to those sites first. Start with the quality sites that have a number of links and tend to be picked up by the press; also re-write some of the verbiage in your release so as to avoid duplicate content. Simple things like re-writing the header or a few sentences within the release can make sure that your release will be picked up by a number of services.
Include Press Release On Your Own Site and Link Internally Once you’ve submitted your press releases to a few press release distribution services, you should also make sure that it has a home on your own web site. In a news or press release section of your site, upload your press release, then add in hyperlinks from the keywords in the release, linking to relevant pages on your site. While you shouldn’t overdo it on internal hyperlinking, three to four hyperlinks to relevant pages – from keywords – is fine.
