The URLwire Effect:
"URLwire is without question the most effective way to tell the right people in the online world about your web site."

"My experience with URLWire has been entirely positive. I received coverage (and links!) from key sites and in e-newsletters, one of which had over 500,000 readers. Resulting traffic has been more than impressive. URLwire demonstrated to me that it's the prime choice for announcing a web site." 

"Eric, URLwire got our site covered and linked online in places we'd tried for months to get in without success. And, URLwire did it in one day."
