PRWeb and Topix.net Announce New Partnership


Ferndale, WA (PRWEB) March 22, 2006

PRWeb, the Internet’s leading press release distribution platform, announces a new partnership with Topix.net, an online source that displays breaking news on more than 300,000 topics.

Topix.net has added a news feed directly from PRWeb, which will give readers access to current business-related headlines.

“We chose to partner with PRWeb because of its impressive database of press releases” said Rich Skrenta of Topix.net. “As a great, international newswire service, PRWeb will help us better deliver targeted news to our users.”

For complete news coverage, users are forced to visit many different sites and sift through a variety of stories that may or may not be relevant to them. Topix.net alleviates this problem by creating thousands of topically driven, specific news web pages and populating each of those pages with only news about that particular topic. Through many strategic partnerships, Topix.net is able to distribute unique content to its readers.

PRWeb has chosen Topix.net as a distribution partner to enhance our direct-to-consumer distribution platform because, as a leader in its space, they have proven to be innovative in the way they make news interactive and relevant, commented Mick Jolly, Executive Vice President of PRWeb. When choosing distribution partners, we are very focused on companies that encourage social interaction with our press release content.
