PR Guidelines

Generally, we accept anything suitable for mainstream media. Because our syndication releases news across multiple high-quality news sites we have to hold all of our content to high standards. We can not accept “junk” releases. If you are used to posting on “free” press release sites or buying $10 articles written by people in countries speaking English as a second language, this service would not be for you.

You must use proper grammar and spelling.

We can not accept any of the following content: Stock Opinions (unless from U.S. registered broker), any release including a Publicly Traded company’s ticker symbol (unless written authorization is included from a company owner/principle), Stock Round-ups / Pumping, Multi-level Marketing (MLM) and make money at home unless it is directly about the corporation, Promoting affiliate link sites, Any content promoting racial or religious hate, Anonymous political action committees (PACs) promoting a candidate, Cigarettes and e-cigs, Content written as biased third-person article and not as news announcement with proper attribution, Software which bypasses Google copy-protection, such as capture of YouTube videos, Promoting sites which are nothing more than affiliate stores hosted by Amazon, Press release distribution services (competing with us), Payday loans or credit cards, Lawsuits with no facts in evidence or wild allegations, Casino and gambling (exception would be charity “casino nights” which are not the same as professional gaming), Promoting any site clearly fraudulent or deceptive, Diet pills or body part enhancement nutraceuticals, Alcohol, tobacco or e-cig products (except in relation to the corporation.), Porn, Spam, Warez, Black Hat sites.
