    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?

    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
