Latest list of Popular, General, Free Online Press Release Directories.

You must have come across several lists of press release directories like top 10, top 50 etc. Most(all of them) of this lists either have irrelevant niches or regional Press release directories where you cannot submit your press release. It is not wise to submit a PR related to your health business to a real estate PR directory. Even if you submit your PR will get rejected by the moderators. I have compiled a list of 24 must have press release directories which

-  Are regularly  crawled by major search engines

-  Is syndicated to Media and Press

- General and accept PR of any category

- Global and not limited to a region

- Free to submit

- Provide links to website

- Have Good Page Rank

- SPAM Free

- All except one has “Do Follow”

 It took me a lot of time and energy to weed out the unwantedPR directories and clean up the list. If you think there are any other goodfree general press release directories out there, please feel free to add in thecomments.
