Why Your News May Not Get Posted

I am sent a lot of press releases, news tips, and other information that people would like to see published on my blog. I do my best to post information and news that is of interest to me and my business, and if that’s the case, I assume it will be of interest to others.

With so many submissions, there is no way I could or would post everything I receive. If you’ve sent me something in the past (or you plan to send me something) and I didn’t post it, here are a few reasons for that:

  • Your news won’t benefit or interest many people in the domain name industry
  • The press release or email you sent wasn’t clear about what is new or being offered
  • The release is far too promotional and isn’t news
  • I was out of town or away when you sent the information to me, and by the time I returned, it wasn’t relevant
  • I saw that someone else already posted it on a different blog or website and that person shares the same opinion as me
A few months ago, I wrote another article giving some tips on how to get your press release published. I think that’s a good place to start if you have some news you’d like to share with other domain investors.

  1. “I saw that someone else already posted it on a different blog or website and that person shares the same opinion as me”

    Look at the redundant postings when comes to SEDO /Afternic Sales.

    There are a few blogs that is worthy of my time to pen my thoughts and if your blog does not have the “BullS’ signature, it means your blog is full of “BullS”

    Having “BullS” means it is the housekeeping seal of approval

  2. When it comes to news and publication, a lot of it has to do with timing and relevance. That said, it becomes increasingly more difficult for news writers to get their work published.
