Frequently Asked Questions
How Our Pricing Works:
All pricing is per press release issued (not a subscription). All services are pre-paid and ordered online. No membership fee. We accept all major credit cards through our secure payment system (PayPal is optional). All pricing shown is “non-profit pricing”.
Free Photo or Logo:
CNS allows you to include one free Web-resolution photo or company logo (no ad banners). You may include a print-resolution (300dpi) image at additional cost. (Note: Most sites don’t use image, but many do.)
Anchor Links Support:
We have always provided live links to fully formed URLs (such as www.yoursite.xyz), but you may also have up to 5 (or within reason) anchor links around words/phrases to “deep-link” into your site pages, such as to a product page, white paper, or online demo. All links other than to the home page at bottom of release will be “no follow” to meet Google’s newest guidelines. It’s best to avoid temporary landing page, or short-term campaign links of any kind in your releases.
If you want links to be visible in emails to media, and on most sites cloning news, you should only use visible URLs (e.g., www.site.com/pagename/). For very long link strings (more than 60 characters), you may want to use Google’s URL Shortener service.

This means we turn away most of the news content “allowed” by the junk free posting sites, and all-you-can-eat services which don’t work with major syndicators.
Specifically, we will not accept any of the following content:
