    More and more I am finding backlinks that look like the following

    Code:
    upload.macromedia.com/exchange/skins/in2itive.fhz?product=127&category=FAQs&documenttitle=get&document=/gip/PKBStoGIP.nsf/c225742500419a8ac22567c400442981/c225742500419a8a422568150042b472?mode=past&pno=24025
    
    download1.parallels.com/PPSMBE/10.2.0/unix/ai/parallels_installer_v3.5.2_build091201.14_os_Debian_4.0_i386?city=suining&keyword=&source=
    
    
    Some how the above sites have links (with optimized anchor text) to an individuals site I am analyzing. If you try to browse any of them, however, a download is started. How are link builders creating these links?

    I guess those are PAD file links.
    Code:

    But they are of the high end variety; not just a random siftware depository.

    Does anyone have an idea on how to create PAD files for the above links? They are of good quality but I am unable to find any place to submit a PAD file. These are essential program mirrors on a particular sites server correct? Is it a matter of becoming an approved mirror site?

    Some the site's I have analyzed show a number of these high quality PAD file backlinks. But I am unable to find a submission page anywhere in the domain/subdomain.
