We’ve helped many businesses promote their launches and events. One important inherent feature of a press release is that it’s time-sensitive and therefore carry a huge influence on the freshness index.
Most press releases are instantly ranked on the first page of Google if they are relevant to the search term AND that the search term has a breakout in search volume. This happens to scenarios like product launches, events, global news etc. These keywords are the best candidates for a news release to rank right into the first page, almost immediately…and it’s paramount for every PR team to understand this.
This press release below carries information about Chris Munch’s product launch. It’s ranking in the first page of Google for some related keywords and sometimes taking multiple spots.
It’s important to note that keyword placement, on-page and content relevancy affects the ranking very much. In this particular release, there is no “review” type of keyword found, hence it’s not ranking for keyword that’s hints review, for instance, “Media Buy Review”.
