Does Press Release Distribution Help With SEO?
Last year Google said that links in press releases are “ignored”.
And I tend to believe them.
First off, most legit press release services use nofollow or redirected links. Plus, even if those links did count, it looks like Google has something in their algorithm to specifically discount press release backlinks.
And don’t get me started on press release “syndication”.
