Lanham, MD (PRWEB) May 18, 2010
PRWeb, the online news distribution service of Vocus (NASDAQ: VOCS), announced today it has partnered with StreetInsider.com, a financial news analysis service. PRWeb news releases will now be automatically syndicated on StreetInsider.com.
“With a steadily increasing segment of large, financially relevant companies using PRWeb to distribute their corporate news and information it has become even more important to make sure we provide visibility to the financial community,” said Jiyan Wei, director of product management with PRWeb. “StreetInsider.com is a great addition to the existing portfolio of financial sites to which we distribute news and information and is indicative of our continuing efforts to extend the reach of our customer’s news into this vertical.”
StreetInsider.com is a next-generation financial news analysis service that provides an ‘inside’ look at Wall Street. Through the partnership, PRWeb will provide StreetInsider.com with a customized feed of company news releases, as part of an existing relationship with Acquire Media. StreetInsider.com will then algorithmically determine which PRWeb news releases will be syndicated on their site.
PRWeb’s network makes news and press releases available to an audience of more than 80 million unique visitors in the United States alone. In addition to PRWeb’s syndication network, PRWeb news releases are distributed directly to an audience of more than two million visitors each month on PRWeb.com, 300,000 direct subscribers, and thousands of media outlets and journalists.
Other recent distribution partnership announcements include those announced in March with MEDesprit, TopNews US, TopNews UK, ComputerUser, and EPICOS. In February, PRWeb announced a first-of-its-kind partnership with Zemanta a free content discovery tool that automatically recommends relevant content to bloggers, as they write posts and draft content.
