An Inconvenient PR Truth – a campaign to reduce PR spam
Near the end of last year we carried out surveys with recipients of press releases which focused on the extent to which the releases they receive from the PR Industry as a whole are relevant to them.

In addition more than half of them had taken action to block a sender of releases due to irrelevance.

I am a director at Vitis PR and we’ve been looking at how we could improve our search engine visibility without having to hire an SEO consultancy. It would be interesting to hear how other companies have done the same.
