    I know what real press releases are.

    what are these press releases that people on DP and WF always talk about. Is it just another form of article marketing? Who sees them and how are they helpful?

    From what I gathered back in the day, it's just one more way to get your name out there.

    The majority of people don't give a fuck that there's some new fad site out (whether it's selling the latest herbal suppliments, etc).

    I guess for people who have legitimate sites that actually provide a real service it can work out. I never tried them. there were too many strict rules for how a press release had to be formatted and written for me to devote any real time to it.

    Waste of your time/money, no one reads them.

    You are able to get some nice backlinks for some authority sites if done right.

    This is what I thought the only use might be.

    It seems like IM is mostly about who can get the most Ezinearticles and press releases published :hs:
