SEO link building is important, and one way to build links to your site is to submit them to PAD-enabled software directories or freeware download sites. Finding these sites is not a problem as there are hundreds of them to be found on the internet.
When you submit to a PAD site, you submit a software package for listing, which is unlike when you submit to a traditional web directory. For regular web directories, you submit the contents of your website along with a link and anchor text, so that users can link back to you.
A PAD file is software that puts all the information in a standardized format, and is sent by software developers to the various free programs and share directories on the Internet. It contains information about the file sites, the download URL, relevant keywords, and other information about your site that web developers typically fill in when submitting to regular web directories.
And for better SEO, a quick tip is to make sure you update the listings and information displayed on the front page of your software download site as it gets more exposure. This can provide better optimization when links can return to your site via links you get from the download site, too.
And a quick tip is also when you submit, you should make sure that the release date of your software in the PAD file is actually the actual submit date. If you have ship dates equal to the release date, you’ll have a better chance of getting front page exposure.
When you create a PAD file that uses your site as a URL to get information about your download and submit this PAD file to the shareware and freeware directories, you will already have the links available. The directories will then create a page that lists all the information in your PAD file along with a link, which is the URL of your site that you have provided.
In any SEO campaign, link building is very useful, but it’s also very tedious, so any web marketer will use whatever link building strategy they might find useful. This PAD file submission strategy can be a great SEO building technique that can generate links for you.
And for links to rank higher with search engines, you need to make sure that the links generated from the download have relevance to the niche site’s content. By flooding your PAD files with quality content containing relevant listed keywords, you will be able to increase the quality of all the links you will generate with this method.
