Optimized Press Releases Boost Search Engine Visibility

Articles in the news engines can improve Internet marketing results

As more companies realize the power of natural search engine results as opposed to paid or sponsored links, news engines are emerging as a vital part of Internet marketing strategy. Yahoo! News now has the biggest online audience – more than CNN or the New York Times reports the Nielsen/Net Ratings and the Internet has become the number one choice for news and more than half of all shoppers – whether they buy off line or online - research their purchase on the Internet. If you want to reach these shoppers, make your company information available in an optimized press release.

Correctly optimized, these articles will rank high in the news engines for your keywords. If you use a distribution service that allows you to create links on your keywords, they will also improve your search engine visibility.

“Not only will you reach a big audience of interested people searching your keywords, your website moves up in the search rankings for those words,” says Sally Falkow, Internet marketing Strategist at Expansion Plus. “If you add the optimized press releases to your web content they get indexed in the natural search too.”

A new study by OneUp Web finds a site entering Google's top natural Search engine results pages (SERP) for the first time can expect an exponential increase in traffic and double the number of conversions.

In the first month a site appears on page one in Google its conversion rates rise 142 percent, according to the study. In the second month conversion rates nearly double (194 percent.) In terms of unique visitors, the average site appearing in Google's top natural SERP could expect a 337 percent increase in traffic in its first month and a 627 percent increase in the second month.

Getting onto page one for a prized keyword may seem like an impossible task to some businesses. Search engine optimization is viewed as an art. In contrast, pay per click is a sure thing and marketers understand advertising. But this strategy can rocket your website onto page one and have your graphs moving straight up.

Using optimized press releases is still a fairly unknown strategy. Companies that want to take advantage of page one search engine visibility should make the most of it while they’re ahead of the game.
