PR Newswire reserves the right to reject any content it does not deem fit for distribution.
iReach limits content to a 1,000 words. The optimum length is generally 400 to 600 words - between about a page and a half and two pages. This length is short enough for readers to digest and search engines to spider fully, but long enough to include rich detail.
We recommend keeping your headline shorter than 60 characters including spaces, as search engines will cut off any words after that in the results they show searchers.
You can select any time for distribution after 1 business day from now. iReach is not meant for time-sensitive or material news, and therefore does not allow for immediate distribution. With iReach standard timing, your release will be processed within 1 business day of receipt. If you need greater control over when your release is distributed, become a PR Newswire member.
Industry and subject targeting helps your news reach the right audience online, giving you more control over your content's niche website syndication and industry tagging. You may select up to 3 total targets.
