Top 15 Most Viewed Press Release Headlines This Month

Top 15 Most Viewed Press Release Headlines This Month

Posted on 26. Jan, 2011 by + in Presss Release Examples

I always find it fascinating to see which press releases are getting the most clicks each month. It reveals some interesting trends in what people are searching for and which keyword terms PRs are ranking well for (i.e. opportunities). These stats span the 30 days between December 25th and January 24th.

Something Very Important to Keep in Mind when Viewing these Stats:

The vast majority clicks to these PRs came directly from search engine searches. That means that people typed in a search term, found the press release among the search results and clicked. What they did afterward is not reflected here. As I look at these I wonder… did the submitters make the most of this opportunity? Did they realize so much traffic would come to their release and did they optimize that release for click through? Searchers come to the PR because they were searching for information related to a keyword in that press release. Did they find it? Did the submitters make it easy for the searcher to engage with the content?

A few on the list that I felt did a really good job are: 8 Minute Abs vs. The Truth About Abs: New Study Helps Consumers Decide (711 Views) and Company Addresses Close Combat Training Scam Complaints (589 Views). Both engage readers immediately with video and images. Readers can click through to the site via the iFrame below. Online PR Media offers many features to help publishers engage readers, but it is up to the publishers whether or not to use them or how they use those tools.

Hope you discover some interesting trends in this ecclectic list of the top 15 most viewed press release headlines this month!

    I love the top 15 – I think what makes this list so great is the fact that when I glance at the titles – most of these are pretty intriguing and make me want to CLICK to read more – I think the mere fact that they seem compelling enough to read just by the headline alone says it all! :)

    It’s always fun to see what others are looking for, I have to admit, I’ve never seen any of these top 15 sites before though. :-) I’d better do some reseach and see what I’m missing! Thanks for the list.

    Thanks for the reminder about all the extras OPM allows submitters to add! It really does make a difference in how a PR looks (and works!) once published.

    I find the six pack abs and close combat training being neck and neck in the top five to be pretty funny. Either way I’m pretty impressed with how many hits some of them got.
