Do you have an RSS feed set up on your site?

For Google News, you can apply here: http://www.google.co.../bin/request.py. Pick "I want to recommend a news source" and fill out the subsequent form. It's not easy getting accepted though.
If you are curious about alternative newswire distribution services besides prweb (which is an excellent service), here's a list:
And if you have more $ to spend, you can use businesswire.com or prnewswire.com.
The other way to get your release visibility via news search is to get picked up by a site that is already included as a news source.
Also, make sure the release page includes an auto discovery tag for the RSS feed.

I think you're looking to get qualified traffic/customers to your site, from the sounds of it, not reporters. If that's the case, you'd be better off writing and submitting articles that are read by end users instead of press releases that are read by reporters.

If for about the same price, I could do it myself and even get 1/10th that number of visitors it would pay off HUGE in backlinks and ad revenue. So that is the goal I'm trying to accomplish.

I think you're really overrating those backlinks, as well as their importance to anything that will have any measurable effect on your sales and/or conversions.

I understand your frustration. The best idea I can offer is to start your own list of those sites that have picked up your past releases. When you send future ones, send it to them individually in addition to through PRWeb.

The backlinks are just an added bonus, the real value would be in ad revenue from having the visitors come to my site in exchange for prweb.

Thank you for your inquiry regarding inclusion in Google News. After some investigation, we've found that our system cannot crawl some of your articles because of the format of their URLs. In order to have your articles crawled by Google News, their URLs must contain a number consisting of at least three digits.
For example, our news crawler would not crawl articles with the following URLs:
It would crawl these pages:
An example of a site that we are able to crawl successfully is http://english.chosun.com. Please note that each article on this site has a highly unique URL.
We apologize for this limitation of our system. If you are able to make changes on your end to allow us to crawl your content, please let us know. Please note also that we don't accept RSS feeds for inclusion in Google News at this time.
