The Master Database is updated roughly every week or so (check the "Last update" date in GIMPS Status page). The data in have the form xxxxxx,yy where xxxxxx is the exponent and yy the bit level up to where it has already been TFed.

After submitting the results, wait for the next update of the database and check to see if the exponents you worked on now show xxxxxx,61 instead of xxxxxx,60 (and the ones for which a factor was found should no longer be in the file). See the following thread to be aware how the reservation system works:
