minor hassle PAD submission sites

PAD (Portable Application Description) files contain contact information about the author, details about a program for sale and its price. There are various ways of broadcasting them so that people looking for a program such yours can find them and use them to find your download site.

I would strongly advise against adding hassling techniques to discourage users from submitting PADs (Portable Application Descriptions) or using automation to submit. PADSites that do that tend to have a short lifespan. One hassling technique is requiring a back link — often a banner ad on your home page! The nerve! They ask for this to try to trick Google into ranking them higher. The catch is then Google detects this they penalise both the PADSite and your site with the back link.

PAD Submission Sites with Minor Hassle

This list has an advantage over other similar lists on the web that are 90% deadwood in that I check the links each day. This catches sites disappearing or no longer accepting PADs. Every two weeks or so I catch sites that have turned into parking sites. If you discover any sites on this list which are no longer accepting PAD s, please let me know at email feedback.

If you manually submit to a site in a language you do not understand, use the Chrome browser which will automatically translate each page as you go with Google Translate.

PADMAPs Why do some pad sites rate logos and some do not? Hassle-free sites supported by the Mini-PAD submitter get logos. I reward PADSites that support the PADMAPs scheme by displaying their logos. Some sites get one because they were once nohassle sites supported by the mini PAD Submitter. Sites in the top 10 got logos. Some sites get one just because the art work appealed to me. Ideally I would have put a logo on every site, but it was just too much work and I have higher priority things to do. I usually have to create the logos myself from artwork I pluck from their websites. I usually prune logos of fussy detail or fine print slogans. I avoid generic logos. I want something that evokes that particular site. I often have to shink logos down. I use Corel PaintShop Pro, Icon Lover and FastStone image caputure to create the logos. If you are a PADSite listed here, email me a logo that fits in the with the others and I will include it. If you are a PADSite not listed here, let me know about you for inclusion. Put new PADSite in the subject line.

This page is sometimes called a backlink page or partners’s page. Many of the PADSites insist I have a link to their home page or submit page. I have both. Usually the back-link verification code is unforgiving. You must either have or not have the lead www. on the URLs (Uniform Resource Locators). I refuse though to point to unrelated websites even when that is a condition of hosting my PAD files.

You can find even more PADSites with Google XML_DIZ_INFO search If you find any hassle-free or even reasonable hassle sites, please pass them along.

If you see errors, omissions or sites that should be added, please let me know. I don’t always detect it when a site goes off the air leaving a parking site or stops accepting PADs or changes it rules for what PADs are acceptable.

If you are thinking of opening a PADSite, check your candidate name for it with speakers of several languages to make sure you have not picked something like ShareWareSewer in some other language, or that sounds like it when pronounced aloud. If you want it to be memorable, your name should not sound too much like everyone else’s name. It should have a logo that sticks in the mind that associates well with the name.
