There’s a lot of people that are unaware of the existence of wordwide news. A news release is just an article in any news agency that is distributed to other media outlets or published on the Internet for readers to read. It can be news, articles or just a press release put out by someone or a group. But news releases aren’t usually made public and don’t have much of a “face to face” effect like an ad in a newspaper does.
Why would anyone want to publish wordwide news? The most popular reason would be to establish presence in other newsgroups. Wordwide newsgroup members already know you’re there so it’s very easy to add them to your own newsgroup. Also, newsgroup members tend to read newsgroups related to their interest, such as cooking, movies, politics and cars. If you can get newsgroups where your niche will likely be accepted then you’ve found your audience.
Now how do you get published in a newsgroup that will allow you to do this? Well, newsgroups don’t really have search capabilities built in to them at all. So in order to be published you’ll need to apply to be listed on the newsgroups database. This usually isn’t free and requires you to first provide some basic information about you and your company.
But how do you know which newsgroup to submit your news to? It all depends on what you’re looking for. If you’re looking for general interest news then you should be looking at the broad newsgroups such as Usenet and Giganews. These types of sites tend to have smaller directories where searches for particular terms are more likely to produce quality results. If you’re looking for specific information about your product or service then newsgroups that are more specific to your topic or field of interest will be better suited to the task.
The problem with trying to search for news through a newsgroup directory is that if you’re looking for something very specific, say for information on your new product line, the results from such a search might be slim to none. This is because these kinds of newsgroups are very selective about who they list and what information they give away. They’re also not usually updated very often and so the only real way to obtain the latest news is to sign up to one of the newsgroups that host the newsgroups. This costs some money but it’s well worth it considering the lack of quality in most regular newsgroup sites. And if you’re good enough at managing multiple email accounts then you can probably spend that money on your newsreader as well.
So in summary, if you’re looking for a newsgroup to subscribe to then you should stick to the more general newsgroups such as Usenet and Giganews. These types of newsgroups are much more likely to have news worthy stories that are relevant to your niche. You should avoid the newsgroups that host newsgroups related to your specific niche however. These newsgroups often have old stories that no longer interest their subscribers and are rarely updated. This can result in a lot of wasted time for people who try to read the latest trends in a certain niche but end up frustrated because there’s no news to be found. If you don’t mind this kind of slowness then you can get by without having to manage multiple email accounts.
