Tool Suggestion
I need a tool

 11:17 pm on Apr 19, 2011 (gmt 0)

So my boss has gone top x list crazy, and isn't happy with the speed that I source sites. Apparently he can outsource a list a top 100 list of sites with contact info, graphics and flavor text in under 6 hours.

I figure there must be some automation going on here. Therefore I am looking for a tool that can spit out a list of sites and contact info after entering a keyword.

Any ideas of a tool that fits this bill? The closest thing I've been able to find is Ontolo, but that is priced right out of my league.

Thanks in advance for any replies!

Welcome to Webmasterworld... have to ask the OBVIOUS question:

Have you asked boss how he does it?

Thanks for the greeting,

Yeah, I've asked but he doesn't have a clue because he outsources the work to someone else. He isn't a very technical guy at all. I get to do all the link building, he just wonders why my numbers are lower.

It might be a combination of two tools. One to query google and come up with the sites that rank well, and another to spider them and come up with the contact info.

He likely just scrapes them. Custom tools are relatively inexpensive and just need to set querying parameters within acceptable limits for search engines.

I've bought Semrush account, some time ago, really useful tool, may be it will help you.You type keyword and it will show you list of competitors, and even it advancement in adwords. Contacts you'll have to find on your competitor's sites.

Just a note to anyone building links...

Having a database to keep your contacts organized is a very, very good thing.

i use access but I am guessing that openoffice probably has a free database that you can use.

One thing that for me, anyway, is essential, is having a date field and a follow up date field for every record, so I know when I last contacted them and when I need to contact them again (if they don't link to my site - persistence is key).
