How can I verify inbound links?
without using a search engine

 8:24 pm on Apr 13, 2001 (gmt 0)

Does anyone know of a program that can crawl a list of sites and check for a particular link?

For example, say I had a list of 100 sites that are supposed to be linking to mine (as part of a prearranged partnership agreement). How can I quickly check to see which ones link and which ones do not?

Yes, there is a program like that, specifically for verifying mutual links. It is a shareware program but the name escapes me. Ring any bells anyone?

Try searching on download.com or the likes.

It is a tricky one isn't it. If you know perl, this is my system.

What I do is bookmark the sites linking to me, then spider them into a directory. Then do a "grep" on the whole directory spitting out the hits. When a hit occurrs, I delete the file.

There is a software out there, that is willing to do this for you. I don't remember the cost [less than US$ 200.00] It will not only check your link [any format you want] in the web site specified by you, but if the web site does not have a link, it can also auto notify you or even the webmater of the web site who is suppose to point a link back to you.

Any idea what this software is called - and where I could find out more information about it?

linxcop or something. Go to download.com and download the demo.
