Tip for PAD file Submission

Quick Tip: To make the most of a PAD file submission, you need to make sure your up to date listing gets shown on the front page of the software download site where it gets most exposure. As a side effect this probably means most link juice flows through your listing and back to your site via any links you get from the download site too :)

When you submit, make sure your software release date in the PAD file is the date of the day you actually do the submission. A lot of sites show recent submissions based on the release date in the PAD file rather than the actual date of submission, so submitting on the day of release maximises the chances of front page exposure.

    I thought that was obvious, in fact there was a site which was very quick are processing pad file submissions, I remember sitting and watching to see how quick it was. Its very important to use the
    release date.

    Obvious to some but not others. I often receive
    submissions for release dates several days in the past.
    These submissions never make it anywhere near the home
    page.

    Sorry I didn’t mean to cause offence.

    I guess a lot of sites must ignore it.
