Your PR is reviewed for content, and I manually choose the highest performing keywords / keyphrases that will deliver the most hits to your PR. So, it takes a couple of hours sometimes.
Thanks for your support!
Your rank in Google or any other site is dependent upon a whole number of factors, several of which are directly tied to the actual writing of your press release. In fact, when I completed a search of your keyphrase, your press release was the third highest ranked posted in the Google search results - right behind the paid listings in Google. So, it might have just taken a little bit of time to be reviewed for content and appropriateness prior to acceptance and submission.
To this end, the main difference behind our site and several other similar services is that all our stories are moderated; most other sites accept just about anything which devalues the content and introduces a lot of duplicate content which also causes stories to rank lower in the search engines. In other words - if you submit to just one or two sites, the likelihood of having a high rank in Google is higher than if you submit to multiple sites, which is subsequently interpreted as spam by Google.
Bearing all these things in mind - as well as a whole host of other things that demand a fairly comprehensive evaluation of your PR content, the submission frequency, the number of sites submitted to, and even the category of submission in each case - it's a bit too complex to immediately determine why or why not something might be happening. If you want to discuss this further, I'd be happy to review with you outside of this FAQ forum at your convenience.
Also, thank you for your support. It is genuinely appreciated, and helps us pay for servers and bandwidth. As a donation-supported vehicle, it is users like you that keep the site going.
