    What tools do you use to keep track of link requests?

    Rather than any spreadsheet per se, is there a cool software you guys know of where you can easily manage 1000s of links?
    For blood type dating go here. If your blood type is rhesus negative, go there. If you are bored and feel like liking a Facebook page, hit this one.

    If you mean links on sites which people buy, you should try OIOpublisher - Control Your Ad Space

    What do you want the tool to do?

    • What data should it record about the links?
    • Should it test the inbound links to make certain that they still exist?
    • Should it host the outbound links on your web site?

    I get links to sites from a variety sources (I hope you do, too). Some might be a directory listing I pay for (e.g., yahoo directory) or some might be a social bookmark (e.g., digg.com link). Sometimes I just email a site owner asking for a link.

    I'm generally looking for a "tool" to track the links, check if they are still there, add new links to the list, and then track when I need to followup with the link or the site owner.

    If I link out then I do that manually, but I'm wanting to track incoming links, not outgoing.

    You are looking for Advanced Link Manager.

    Try Link manager. It's a reciprocal link manager - it's freeware with a lot of useful features. I haven't used it with 1000s of links as you need it but it but I'm sure you'd want to try it out.

    Hope this helps.

    I remember, I used that I think three years ago. It works well. All data is saved in a txt file. You can take backups and use them on a different site. Its a really neat script. I think I had around 700 links on that script. I am sure it could handle 1000
