For many businesses, Google searches deliver more traffic to their website than any other source. Yet we also know that being among the first page of search results for a keyword is essential if your site is to get traffic. If your website is beyond the first page of Google, the likelihood that it will be found goes way down and it can be hard to get your website on to that first page of Google results.
However, Google values legitimate, fresh content, and so you will often see very new posts and articles from trusted sources included among search results for keywords. Social media press releases are a perfect example of new, fresh content, and here we show you some examples of how businesses successfully used PRUnderground.com in the last month to get their announcement on to the first page of Google, for some incredibly competitive keywords.
[Editor’s NOTE: The results below are pretty amazing and powerful for your announcements. But if you are reading this thinking you can issue fake press releases (or use other scams) just to get traffic, please note that we will not accept them. All releases are moderated by an editor and we only accept legitimate releases.]

Remember, Google placement is just one of the common benefits of distributing a social media press release on PRUnderground.

Plus your own newsroom, and the ability to include images, links, video, and your social media page links in your press release. Not bad for $20-39!
