Will listing in press release site give my site a jump in rankings?

On December 26th 2012, Matt Cutts, head of Google’s webspam team, announced that press releases have no value for SEO rankings.

However when digital marketers run an experiment for low competitive keywords, they found proof that press release links do improve search ranking.

This follows an old digital marketing adage which is “If you listen to everything Google says, you could end up with no lunch at all”.

However, like all things in life, do it in moderation and make sure that you have a truly newsworthy story to tell.
