The past year has been an exciting one for PRWeb. Our user base has grown tremendously as we have continued to broaden the reach of our distribution network, expanded into new countries and become the most visited news release site in the industry.
The excitement has surged in the past several weeks as we are getting ready to unveil some major updates that will carry PRWeb to new heights. The new enhancements will include the following:
More social features – We will be placing more emphasis on links for the leading social sites to encourage readers to share. At the same time, we’ll also be making it easier for you to share your news release through social channels by expanding our popular TweetIt feature to include Facebook and LinkedIn.
Enhanced distribution to local media – By partnering with some of the leading media organizations in the US, we’ve dramatically increased the reach of our distribution network. Your release will now be shared with an additional 200 local media sites including the Houston Chronicle, Seattle Post-Intelligencer and Connecticut Post.
Web site updates to help search friendliness – There has been some major changes in the way search engines work over the past year. Throughout, our traffic has only continued to increase – a testament to our dedication to comply with Web site best practices – and we expect more to come in the upcoming year. We will be releasing a number of architectural changes designed to further optimize our site. Most of these changes will be behind the scenes, only evident in the search performance of your article. One change you may notice will be a time limit of six months that will be enforced on the iFrame, a response to Google’s increasing focus on page speed.
Increased financial distribution – Customers who are interested in reaching the business/financial community will now have the ability to. We’re combining the industry-leading online distribution of PRWeb with additional distribution to the leading financial outlets, including Yahoo! Finance, MarketWatch and Wall Street Journal Digital.
We’ll have more details for you next week. We’re all excited by the enhancements and can’t wait to provide even more value to you, our customers.
