What happens once I publish a press release onto a submission site?

Your press release will appear ‘as is’ (i.e. a carbon copy of what you wrote) on the platform that you submitted it to. It’s then distributed to relevant news and media organizations. This is when the magic happens.

If a journalist and/or publication is interested in the story, they’ll pick it up and run with it in one of two ways:

  • Publish it ‘as is’ on their own publication. This is literally a copy-and-paste of the press release that you wrote.
  • A journalist will write it up into an article, using quotes and other information contained in the press release.

How to check how many press release the site published per week or day?

I’m using not most accurate but useful Google tools (Search operator site:). Search the site domain and add a time limit.

That is what I found after reviewing a 100+ pr-sites.

I did not review tens of thousands of sites because I only saw 100 and I am a human, so maybe some of the data providers will do a bigger marketing analysis.
