 This can be particularly useful if you want to include some of your chosen keywords and phrases. Obviously, it is not ethical to change the meaning of the press release by adding inappropriate words and phrases, but it is fine if the words and phrases you add do not change the press release to the point where it is no longer accurate.

One important point to note is that news, being time-sensitive, can 'date' your site very quickly so it's important not to place too much emphasis on the timings/dates unless you are prepared to commit to refreshing this part of your site regularly. For example, if you were to publish a page on your web site entitled "Today's News" and the date of the release was six months earlier, visitors to your site would draw obvious conclusions about the freshness (and overall quality) of your site.
