Will I be posted on the main websites for NBC, FOX, ABC and CBS?2023-11-03T11:36:20-07:00

The short answer is no. You won’t be published to their main website like nbc.com as those are usually reserved for national headline news. But you will be published on their local affiliates such as NBC 2, NBC 3, etc. which are the official TV station websites. For example, NBC 3 is for channel 3 in a specific city and is part of the NBC news network. It is basically like getting published to a local newspaper.

Are the article backlinks using follow or nofollow?2023-11-03T09:44:54-07:00

We emphasize the importance of both follow and nofollow links in the context of SEO. It’s crucial to understand that while nofollow links may not directly impact rankings, they play a vital role in maintaining a diverse and healthy backlink profile. Striking a balance between follow and nofollow links is key to avoiding potential penalties from search engines like Google. This comprehensive approach reinforces the notion that both types of links should be considered in crafting an effective SEO strategy, therefore both type of backlinks are used in the publishing process.

How long does the article stay live on these websites?2022-01-17T22:18:41-07:00

The time it stays on a website is dependent on each news site. As with any news publication, they have a shelf life and can be considered old news. Some remove them after 2 years, others 90 days, some keep them forever. The reality is that you have been featured and that will always be true so you can claim that as long as you want. We will not remove your article at any time unless it violates our terms of service.

How long will it take for the article to display online?2023-11-03T10:24:32-07:00

After we’ve submitted the approved release, it will go out immediately unless you have scheduled a specific time or date for it.

Estimated Release Processing Times:

  • 1 hour on Monday through Friday between 2 AM EST and 8 PM EST
  • 4 hours on Saturday and Sunday between 4 AM EST and 8 PM EST
What if I want to publish the article myself and not use this service?2022-01-17T22:26:35-07:00

You could reach out to each news station on an individual basis, but most the odds of you getting published are high. The reason for this is they normally only work with customers who can offer a high volume of articles each month.

Will my article be published as a blog post or a press release?2022-01-17T22:29:10-07:00

Since we publish to our news network they will be considered a press release.

Will you write a unique article about my business?2022-01-17T22:35:02-07:00

Yes, our professional writers will gather your business information and do the proper research to write a completely custom article highlighting your business in the best way possible. This includes using backlinks to your website to help with search engine optimization (SEO).

How many words will the article contain?2023-11-03T11:17:18-07:00

The article can be anywhere between 200-700 words. Typically, for the press release format it is usually on the low end of that range because it is not necessary to focus on the length of the article, rather the important parts are crafting the backlinks appropriately for SEO purposes.

Can the article be rewritten if I’m not satisfied with it?2022-01-17T22:42:11-07:00

We will make a valiant attempt to get it right the first time. Once the article is written it is sent for your approval one time only. At that time you can make the necessary changes before it gets published.

Will the article look the same on all the news sites?2022-01-17T22:45:14-07:00

Yes, one article is written and used across all the news sites we get you published on.

Can you describe this service?2023-11-03T11:21:39-07:00

We custom craft an article related to your business that gets published onto NBC, FOX, ABC and CBS  affiliate sites.

You can put the “As seen in NBC, FOX, ABC and CBS” badge on your website, social media, business cards, book/ebook, etc. since you have been featured by those networks.

This gives you massive social proof to turn website visitors into paying customers, boost your Google ranking through backlinking and help with your search engine optimization (SEO).

What if my website was built by another developer?2020-10-11T00:20:26-07:00

Typically our plans are for sites we build or re-design, but we welcome clients who are wanting long term assistance from a dedicated WordPress team. The first step would be to do an initial evaluation of your website to get familiar, learn how it was built and look for any potential issues that could come up later. Then we will make a list of issues to fix right away and suggest any improvements required to proceed with getting onto one of our monthly care plans.

My website is down! What do I do?2021-09-08T16:42:39-07:00

If your website is not opening, first confirm if you are the only one experiencing the issue by visiting DownForEveryoneOrJustMe and putting in your website URL to check (Example – www.websitelifestyle.com)

  • Down for just you – Try clearing your browser cache and cookies and then launch your site again. Also please verify you are not having issues with your Internet connection or personal Wi-Fi network.
  • Down for everyone – Shoot us an email, even though we most likely have already been notified by our website uptime monitoring system.
