Do you have any guarantees about my press release performance and pick on Google News?

We do guarantee permanent placement of your press release in our USA Newsroom as well as the network of over 1,000 news sites. This will assist in online presence and search engine availability.

Google News uses algorithms to determine pickup. Here are some Google News general guidelines as they are all about ensuring quality content.
Three key things to pay attention to:
Content Type – The content should be timely, relevant and newsworthy.
Original & Readable – Ensure that content is original and easy to read by many education levels.
Trustworthy – Your content should offer a clear fact based on expertise and reliability of what is written.
Google is now looking for a more journalistic style of writing. This means your content should reflect that of a journalist in the field that your press release is conveying.

Can I carry-over my monthly press release credits?

In order to maintain and optimize our editorial needs each month, we do not allow carry-over of credits. This allows us to accurately predict operations and continue to keep costs at 1/10 the price of other newswire services. However, if you miss a month you can reach out to customer service and they often can submit an occasional press release for you if your subscription date resets to the new month.
