Simply type in the name of a new project and SubmitWolf will create it for you.

Ich habe meine Registrierungsdetails eingegeben, aber SubmitWolf weist Sie als ungültig zurück.
Stellen Sie sicher, daß Sie die Registrierungsdetails genau so eingegeben haben, wie Sie sie in der E-Mail bekommen haben. Achten Sie hierbei besonders auf Groß- und Kleinschreibung des Registrierungsnamens und der Seriennummer.

Ich bekomme die Fehlermeldung: "Kann den angegebenen Browser nicht öffnen." (Submitwolf 4,5,6)
The browser path is not set correctly in SubmitWolf's Preferences. Das Feld "Browser" muss den vollen Pfad zur ausführbaren Datei ihres HTML-Browsers enthalten. For information on setting up SubmitWolf to work with either Internet Explorer, Netscape etc, see below.

Configuring your browser:

In order to setup the program to work with IE, Firefox, Netscape etc, you need to enter the location of the browser executable file eg. 'C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe' in the Preferences Browser field.


Ich kann keine Informationen eingeben, da alle Felder grau hinterlegt sind.
Sie müssen zunächst ein neues Projekt starten, indem Sie NEUES PROJEKT aus dem DATEI Menü wählen.


SubmitWolf v6.0 fängt an, meine Seite anzumelden und nach kurzer Zeit stoppt der Computer und stürzt komplett ab.
Kürzen Sie die Beschreibung, die Stichwörter oder den Titel um einem Absturz während der Übertragung vorzubeugen.
Stellen Sie sicher daß Sie nicht zu viele Stichwörter haben. 10-20 sind ausreichend.

SubmitWolf meldet mich bei 0 Suchmaschinen erfolgreich an.(SubmitWolf 5,6,7)
This error is usually displayed when SubmitWolf cannot connect to the internet. Check that you have your proxy set, this can be found in the Options/Preferencesmenu. Your ISP can tell you what your HTTP proxy and port number need to be. (note: most users do not require a proxy). As a quick guide, you can use the same proxy as netscape or IE use in their HTTP Proxy settings. Refer to the browser help to find these settings.

SubmitWolf v5.0 fails to install script files automatically.

Check that you have your proxy set, this can be found in the OPTIONS - PREFERENCES menu of SubmitWolf v5.0. Your ISP can tell you what your HTTP proxy and port number need to be. (note: most users do not require a proxy). As a quick guide, you can use the same proxy as Netscape or Explorer use in their HTTP Proxy settings, refer to the browser help to find these settings.

If SubmitWolf v5.0 still fails to install the script upgrades, download this file: http://www.trellian.com/bin/sw4/sw5_script.exe

Entzippen Sie den Inhalt in das SubmitWolf v5.0 Verzeichnis, indem Sie die Datei ins SubmitWolf v5.0-Verzeichnis kopieren und ausführen. Dann starten Sie SubmitWolf v5.0, das die Skripts dann für Sie installiert.

Otherwisecontact support.


Ich bekomme die Fehlermeldung: "Kann die Projektdatei nicht schreiben".
Stellen Sie sicher, daß Sie keine der folgenden Zeichen , . / \ ? : ; ' " oder Leerzeichen im Projektnamen verwendet haben.
Sie sollten dann über NEUES PROJEKT aus dem DATEI Menü ein neues Projekt erstellen. Oder über ÖFFNEN aus dem DATEI Menü ein bereits vorhandenes Projekt öffnen, das keines dieser Zeichen enthält.

SubmitWolf v4.0 and v5.0: Nothing happens when I press "rank"?
Stellen Sie sicher, daß Sie zumindest einige der Suchmaschinen aus dem unteren Teil des RANG Abschnittes gewählt haben.
Stellen Sie sicher, daß Sie ein Stichwort und die URL in den RANG Abschnitt eingegeben haben.

Wenn ich ANMELDEN drücke passiert nichts.
Make sure that you have selected at least one or more engines in the ENGINES folder.

SubmitWolf v4.0 and v5.0: What does "1/20" mean in ranking results?

Die erste Zahl beschreibt den Rang der Webseite. Die zweite Zahl steht für die Anzahl der überprüften Ergebnisse der Suchmaschine.

So bedeutet das Beispiel 1/20, daß Ihre Seite als erstes von 20 Ergebnissen bei dieser Suchmaschine erscheint.


SubmitWolf v4.0 and v5.0:Can I add search engines to the "Ranking" section of SubmitWolf?
No. SubmitWolf 4 and 5 have been discontinued and are no longer updated.

Was sollte ich als "Benutzername" und "Passwort" in SubmitWolf verwenden?
Einige Suchmaschine fordern Sie auf einen "Benutzernamen" und "Passwort" anzugeben, mit welchem Sie später Änderungen vornehmen können. Dieses Passwort sollte NICHT Ihr Submitwolf, FTP oder E-Mail Passwort sein. Denken Sie sich einfach eins aus und schreiben Sie es sich irgendwo auf, für den Fall, daß Sie später Änderungen bei Ihrem Eintrag vornehmen können.

Was ist der Hauptunterschied zwischen "SubmitWolf v7.0" und "SubmitWolf Enterprise"?
The main differences between the Standard package and the Enterprise edition are:
  1. The Enterprise edition is licensed for third party submissions.
  2. The Standard package is not.

The Enterprise edition simply offers more features:

  • It can do batch submission.
  • It can read in form data.
  • Enterpriseversionsanmeldungen erhalten keine BestätigungseMail von uns.
  • It has HTML reporting so as to distribute reports to your customers.
  • It has customizable reporting to display your name and logo on the reports.

Note: SubmitWolf Enterprise is only available as part of the SEO Toolkit 2 Enterprise. It cannot be purchased separately.


Warum will SubmitWolf meine Proxyeinstellungen wissen wenn ich gar keinen Proxyserver benutze?
Often this can be solved by checking with your ISP or network administrator regarding what the proxy settings should be. Failing this there may be another application that is blocking SubmitWolf from making a connection to the internet, this may be a result of a personal firewall or Virus application that is running in the back ground on your machine, try disabling each application one by one so as to find out where the problem lies.

My SubmitWolf v4/5/6 details don't work in v7.0.
You need to purchase SubmitWolf 7.

How do I import my old projects to SubmitWolf v7.0?
Import the projects via the Import function in the File menu. See the manual for more information.

My About box in SubmitWolf v6 does not show any information, how can I fix it?
This is directly related to the version of Internet Explorer that is currently installed on the computer, as it is an Internet explorer function being used to display this missing information.
Updating to Internet Explorer version 6 will solve the problem. The problem does not effect submission to engines.

I have a demo and am trying to enter in my registration details, but the next button is not active.
There are a number of causes for this problem; the following needs to be checked:
  • Check that you have purchased the correct version of the registration details, and not an older version's details. ie. Submitwolf 4 registration details will not register Submtiwolf 5.
  • Check the details have been entered exactly as they were sent to you, as they are case sensitive.
  • Check that the details are in the correct fields (e.g. serial not entered into the name field.

I have several different regional engine packs but I only see the English engine definitions update. (SubmitWolf 6)
The engine definitions item displays the English flag next to it, however it will update ALL the definitions for all engine packs you currently have associated with your serial number.

I still only have demo engines.
SubmitWolf 6 -You will need to force an upgrade of the engine definitions using the following technique:
  1. Once the Program is registered start up your live upgrade client. This can be launched from the pull down menu or the red clock icon.
  2. Select engine definitions form the list of available updates under SubmitWolf.
  3. Click upgrade and wait for download to finish.
  4. Exit live upgrade and re-start the program.


SubmitWolf 7- You need to run the Engine subscription wizard. See the manual for more information.





Why are some engines manual?

Manual engines cannot be submitted to automatically for various reasons such as:

  • Some search engines and directories, such as Lycos and Yahoo, require the webmaster to register and respond to a confirmation email, then log into the engine and finally submit the website.

  • Most directories require the webmaster to browse through the directory's category structure to find a suitable category, then submit the website.

  • Some engines require very specific information in order to submit the website. B. Do you accept Visa cards, which countries does your business ship to? etc.

  • Engines with very specific categories, e.g. Aromatic oils, French poetry, Small town business directories, are also set to manual as they are too detailed to add as a SubmitWolf category.

  • The submission page requires a unique security code to be entered in order to validate the submission. A different security code is generated for each page visit, and is designed to prevent automated submissions. Engines that receive a large number of spam or junk submissions will often implement security codes.

    In Submitwolf, Manual engines are marked with a grey gear image.


Why doesn't Submitwolf submit to Hotbot, MSN, Lycos, Yahoo etc.?

Many major engines only accept paid listings. e.g. MSN, Fast/Lycos, Inktomi, Ask, Looksmart and Hotbot. For paid inclusion into these engines, visit http://www.prioritysubmit.com

Other engines, such as Yahoo, require manual submissions(see above FAQ item)



Warum überspringt SubmitWolf einige Suchmaschinen?
  • Alle regionalen Suchmaschinen werden übersprungen wenn Ihre URL nicht mit dieser Region in Verbindung steht. For example if your website domain ends in au, the website can only be submitted to Australian engines and general engines.

  • Viele Suchmaschinen haben spezifische Regeln bezüglich der Seiten, die Sie zulassen. Sollten Sie etwas eingegeben, daß die Regeln einer Suchmaschine verletzt, wird sie übersprungen. For example, some engines do not accept adult sites or gambling sites.

  • Some engines only accept websites about a specific category. For example, a Travel search engine will only accept Travel related websites. If your website does not fall into the Travel category, the engine will be skipped.

  • Some engines only accept commercial websites, some only accept non commercial websites. If your website is commercial, ensure your company/business name is entered in the company/business name in the contacts screen.

  • A number of engines are marked for manual submission for various reasons such as:
    • The engine only accepts websites about a very specific category that SubmitWolf does not list. eg. Aromatic oils, Dobermans, ASP code etc,
    • The engine's submission process requires a constantly changing password or code to be entered.
    • The engine only accepts websites from a specific region, state or province.

How often should I resubmit my website?

Many search engines request that you only submit your website once. These engines are marked as "No resubmission" and any attempts to resubmit to them using SubmitWolf, will not be successful. This is to stop multiple submissions creating a large backlog of sites for search engines to index. Many search engines will not index your website, or even ban your site, if you submit it too many times. If you search for your website on a search engine or directory and it is indexed, then it does not require a resubmission.

If you have drastically changed your website and would like it respidered, you can create a new project using the same details and resubmit your website.

Link lists can be submitted to on a daily basis. The oldest links are replaced with the newly submitted links, meaning that your link can be cycled off the list in a matter of hours.

Warum wird meine Seite nur bei so wenigen Maschinen angemeldet?
You have may not have selected all the available engines. In the engine selector you also need to select the MultiSubmit and Link List directories (optional).

Nur wenige Suchmaschinen sind verfügbar, wenn Sie eine unregistrierte Version von SubmitWolf haben.

I have submitted my site, so why hasn't it been added to an engine?
Die Zeit, die die Suchmaschinen benötigen, um Ihre Seite ihrem Index hinzuzufügen kann stark variieren. Dies kann je nach Suchmaschine sofort geschehen oder gar mehrere Monate dauern. Die Anmeldeseiten der meisten Suchmaschinen werden einen Anhaltspunkt geben wie lange es dauern wird Ihre Seite einzutragen. Submitting your site to an engine does not guarantee that it will be listed, some engines may ban your website if they receive multiple submissions. Manche Suchmaschinen prüfen die eingegangenen Anmeldungen manuell und die Administratoren entscheiden dann nach eigenem Ermessen, ob Ihre Seite hinzugefügt wird oder nicht.
Wie kann ich die Anzahl der Suchmaschinen erhöhen, bei denen ich angemeldet werde?
  1. You can use the EngineEditor to add your own engines. This program is included with SubmitWolf.
  2. If you have regional domains eg. a .fr or .de version of your website, you can purchase additional engine expansion packs.
Note: Regional engine expensions are only of benefit if you have a site with the same domain, or if your pages are in a language that is appropriate for the region.


My website isn't in French and/or doesn't have a domain French domain. Can I submit my website to the French search engines?
Generally to be accepted in a foreign search engine, your site must contain information about the country, provide a service to residents of the country or provide information that is useful to people residing in that country.
Many search engines and directories will not list foreign sites in order to restrict their search engine to businesses within their own country.

For example, a website selling/advertising a house cleaning service in America, is not relevant or useful to residents of France.

Websites that are not relevant are generally not accepted, and submitting non relevant sites is considered as spamming the engine. Spamming search engines in this way leads to engines restricting submissions by requiring a unqiue security code to be entered prior to accepting the submission, or even implementing a pay per submission scheme.


Can I submit each page of my website?
No. Most engines specifically request that only the index pages is submitted. There are two reasons for this:
  1. To prevent multiple submissions creating a large backlog of sites for search engines to index. Some search engines have people manually checking each website before it is listed, so submitting each page will only annoy the submission checker.
  2. Most search engines will spider each page of your website anyway.
Many search engines will not index your website, or even ban your site, if you submit it too many times.


What type of sites can be submitted to the Personal Home Pages category ?
The Personal Home Pages category is for personal sites, eg sites about John Smith, or John Smith's dog. This category is not for commercial websites.


I'm not sure which category is right for my website?
The category you select is important, as it dictates which search engines will be submitted to. If you select an inappropriate category, your site will be submitted to engines that are totally unrelated to your site. B. submitting an Accountancy service website to the Automotive / Cars category will most likely result in your website not being listed, as its not about the automotive or car industry.
If you need help selecting a category, email support with your website URL and we will advise you of the most suitable category for your site.


Can I submit my website to different categories?
No. Most engines specifically request that websites are submitted to ONE category only. Even if you select a few categories in the Category tab, SubmitWolf will select the category at the top of the list when submitting. If the top category is not supported by an engine, SubmitWolf will then select the next category on the list.

Performing multiple submissions to different categories via SubmitWolf will be classed as a multiple submission to a search engine, which is likely to result in a ban.



Can I suggest a search engine, web directory or link list to be added to SubmitWolf?
Yes you can suggest a URL here.

Note: Pay Per Click or Pay For Inclusion search engines, and Personal web sites are not accepted.


What is the procedure for reporting broken engines in my engine list?
Engines in the SubmitWolf scripts can stop functioning for many different reasons. Click here to report a broken engine.




What platforms are supported and do you have MAC version?

Version 7.0 ist erhältlich für Windows 2000 und XP.

Mac users can use Virtual PC. For more information please see: http://www.microsoft.com/mac (This information provided on an "as-is" basis, and operated at user's own risk).


Where can I get the latest engine definition upgrades and how often are they updated?
Die Skripts werden je nach Bedarf aktualisiert. Aber im Durchschnitt ist mindestens einmal im Monat ein Upgrade erhältlich. Submitwolf 7 will automatically update the engines prior to submission.
