I'm new to webmasterworld.com so please bear with me until I fully get the rules.
Back on topic:
Shaggy, I have a suggestions for you: URL snipped. I do not want to comment on the quality of their services but it does save you the time for checking links from three search engines: Google, Altavista and Hotbot (this last one is slightly relevant for Lycos, actually).
Hope it helps.
Welcome to WebmasterWorld Nicu, we try and shy away from posting URL's and discussing specific products where possible

Getting this project off the ground is the hard part. I do dedicate some time each day now to collecting these links.

There is no shortcuts here I'm afraid if you want to do it right. You'll have to visit every one of these sites individually.
You can however download the Google toolbar, it helps evaluate the websites and presents all the inbound links in one click of the mouse.
You also have to bear in mind that Google will only list the links of those websites that are listed with google. The same applies to other SE's and directories.
A website may have a popularity count of 1000 in total but may only show 200 in google. That means that in order to target these competitors effectively you will have to adopt the same strategy with the other SE's that list the other 800. :)
