How do I upload my previous submissions?

If you haven't used our service, but have made directory submissions previously, you can upload a list of directories that have been submitted to, so that we can avoid resubmitting to these directories.You can upload the list in one of two ways, either by using Excel or Notepad.

Using Excel

In order to upload details of your previous submissions, you would first need to open an Excel worksheet. Columns 1 and 2 on the first line need to be named 'Site' and 'Directory' respectively.

Fill in each site URL with the URL of the directory the site was submitted to, in the same row of the work sheet under the respective columns. Under the 'Site' column, enter your website URL and under the 'Directory' column, enter the URL of the directory which the site was submitted to. Your website URL needs to be repeated under the 'Site' column for each directory URL that it has been submitted to.

After you have finished entering the URLs, re-check your worksheet to ensure that there are no blank spaces between the entries. Then click on 'File' > 'Save As', enter a filename and choose to save in CSV (comma delimited) format, an option you will find in the drop down menu next to 'Save as type'.

If Excel asks you to confirm changes that will be made, click on 'Yes' 

Using Notepad

In order to upload details using the Notepad format, open a Notepad sheet and type Site,Directory in the first line. From the next line, begin typing the URLs of each site submitted and the URLs of the directories submitted to, separated only by a comma. 

After you finish entering the URLs, click on 'File' > 'Save As'; where it says 'File name', type a name followed by '.csv' (e.g., NOTE.csv). Where it says 'Save as type', select 'All Files' from the drop down menu, then click on 'Save'.

Note: You can only enter those websites that have been added to your account with Directory Maximizer; other websites will not be processed.
All URLs need to be prefixed with the 'http://' for the upload to be successful.

After doing this, login to your account and click on the 'Upload List of Submissions' icon.

Go to the upload file section at the bottom of the page and click on 'Browse' to locate your file. Then click on the 'Upload' button and wait until the upload is complete.
