    1. What is PAD Submission?

    PAD Submission is submitting a pad file of your software which is an XML file carrying the basic information about the software—software company info, program info, descriptions, web info. (General URLs and download URLs) and so on to download sites or directories for increasing your software exposure rate. Most download sites require PAD files if you want to submit your software to them.

    2.How to do pad submission?

    You can manually create a pad file and submit it to the download sites. http://padsites.asp-software.org/ this page contains almost all of download sites. If you can not do that by yourself, you can tend to a submission tool which can both automatically generate and submit pad files to about 1,000 sites such as PAD Submit Worker or any others you want by searching Google.

    3. What is the benefits of PAD Submission in SEO.

    Once your pad files including your software info like profit URL have been submitted to a large number of sites, you will get an amount of backlinks from these sites as lots of download sites have high authorities. Ofcourse, this will improve your sitepage rankings.

    Before considering PAD submission for SEO purposes, you might want to take a look at the experience of someone who tried it, from a thread in seosunite.com . If I understand correctly, his website either dropped 200 places or dropped to position 200, I'm not sure which. In any case, I would avoid any kind of technique that causes that big of a drop in ranking. It appears to be another way of automating the process in order to "game" the system. Unfortunately, the person who started the thread in soeunite apparently learned the hard way.

    What you are referring to is PAID Submission not Pad. It means purchasing listings in web directories.

    Actually, there is something called PAD submission. If you go to the link in my previous post, you will find an example of someone who tried it, and wound getting a drop in ranking because of it. Don't feel to bad, though. In another forum, several people made the same assumption you did.

    Thanks for making that clear. Often people who ask such questions refer to those terms and hence the assumption. May it was not so in this case.

    When software developers want to submit their software to various freeware and shareware directories, there is a standardized format used to hold all of the information about the software. A file in this format is called a PAD file, and it uses basic XML markup to store information about the software in question. The file size, the download URL, relevant keywords, and other data are stored in these files. Instead of requiring developers to fill out tons of different forms, most shareware and freeware directories just accept PAD files directly.
