Press Release Seo Results
Posted 21 May 2008 - 01:19 AM
It could've been coincidence, but the noticable SERP results seemed to take effect almost immediately after the PR ( within a few days ). Also this is for the same site that I've talked about in previous posts regarding poor SERP. It is now ranking within the first 3 pages for highly competitive keyword phrases on Google where before it ranked poorly (ie: 50th page). Note that the domain itself is only a few months old, and it hasn't really accumulated much for backlinks except for the Press Release as of recently.
I wouldn't consider the site to have many high quality backlinks, so I'm not sure how the site could've suddenly negated the aging delay, if there really is one.
Some extra info, the $200 SEO package was used and it received an ed score of 4.

Of course it can make a difference
not sure what you meant by the $200 package though

1. Don't count on the gain sticking over time. The why for this phenomenon is that many times the places that pick up and display your release (including the site you submitted it to) typically show it up fairly high in their structure right after it's released. But over time your release will either disappear, or may get moved to an Archive that is a bit deeper in their site structure. So in time you probably won't be getting quite the same juice being passed through the links pointing to your site.
2. What you said is completely normal. Even for relatively competitive phrases and even with newer sites I usually see some positive movement after submitting a Press Release. Of course the closer you get to Page 1 the less movement you see because things tend to get far more competitive. But even then a well written release that gets picked up by some good places can cause movement of a few places. In the short term.

Sorry, I meant to include that I used prweb to distribute it

Used PRWeb myself recently - and was a little disappointed at the pickup by other sites. I may be misremembering but in the past, more blogs had picked up on PrWeb's feed and resulted in wider coverage. We had a few relevant blogs pick up on our news, but generally it was confined to PrWeb.com.
