Software Directory Submission Service

Last modified: November 19, 2017

Why Use Software Directory Submission Service?

In order to get your software into the right hands and increase sales, you need to promote it. One of the main aspects of software promotion is submission to as many download websites and directories as you can. After all, downloads, traffic, and sales come from a sustained presence on the internet.

What Does This Service Include?

You have probably figured out by now that software submission is not as easy as it sounds. It takes a lot of time and effort which is why I will do it for you. Here’s what this service includes:

  • Creating a PAD file is the first thing that has to be done since most download directories only allow these kinds of submissions. PAD or Portable Application Description is an XML-based standard that provides authors with product descriptions and specifications, using a standard data format.
  • Finding 30 high-quality download websites and directories that are also relevant to your software.
  • Determining the best possible category on the website is also very important. These categories include different supported systems, software purpose and prices (is it a freeware or a shareware?).
  • Writing a high-quality site description. Some websites require a short description, others a more elaborate one. I will write appropriate descriptions for any website that might require it.
  • Submitting your software is the final step and, of course, the most important one. I will do this manually, not with the help of an automated software.
    Most websites take some time to approve the submitted software, but don’t worry! I will closely follow what’s going on and if, for some reason, your software does not get approved on a certain website, I will find a new one.
  • In the end, you will get a list of 30 websites and directories where your software has been listed.

What Are The Benefits Of This Service?

It will help you:

  • Promote your software. Like I said earlier, software submissions are a great way to promote your software.
  • Easily reach thousands of people. Every directory I will submit your software to has tens or hundreds of thousands monthly visitors! I’m sure you don’t want to miss out on the chance to get your software in front of them.
  • Get targeted traffic – this is actually one of the main reasons for software submission.
  • Improve your SEObacklinks and increased link popularity will improve your website’s page ranking and position in the search engines.
  • Gain more visibility and more downloads which lead to increased sales!

What Do I Need From You?

Before I can start submitting your software to download websites and directories, there are a couple of things I’m going to need from you:

  • First of all, I need the URL of your software’s website!
  • You will need to provide me with all the information about the software (that I can’t find on your website) in order to make a PAD file that meets all the standards.
  • After I make the PAD file I will need you to upload it to your website and send me the URL that should look something like this:



Why are manual submissions better than automated?

Different websites have different fields you need to fill in before submitting the software. Automated systems will not do this properly, they will only submit a PAD-file URL. This may cause the website or directory to not approve your submission. Also, automated systems cannot choose the best category for you—this can be done manually. The only one disadvantage of the manual website submission system is that it takes a lot of time.


How long will it take for you to do this?

It all depends on our communication or how long it will take you to provide me with all the necessary information. Also, the time it takes for submissions to be approved varies and that’s something neither you nor me can affect.


Can you do more than 30 sites?

I’m sure we can work something out, but keep in mind I will only choose websites and directories with high monthly visits and Domain Rating, and also relevant to your software type. I will not submit your software just anywhere.


Will you submit my software to websites and directories that don’t accept PAD submissions?

Sure! Manual submissions to those websites are a part of this service. After all, my goal is to get your software to the best possible sites and directories, no matter what kind of submissions they require.


What if I already have a PAD file?

We’ll discuss this and everything else when we start our communication. Don’t worry.
