By typing the title of your press release in quotation marks in to a search engine you can see how many resulting links are pulled. This tells you how many websites have picked up your release and are including or linking out to it. Two press release wires that enable optimization are PR Newswire and PRWeb. These services have options for including images, videos, and additional multi media in your press releases.

Companies can speak directly with their customers, and often times loyal ones will pick up on information that your company is releasing and then they themselves will duplicate and spread the information for you.
