Tool to verify link existence to my website

Okay friends here is the situation:-

One of our client's websites has been hit by Penguin and so we are in the process of removing every unnatural link to our client's site

Many of the websites we send emails for link removal responds and confirms the deletion of link but many don't respond and we end up sending reminders to those sites

Is there a tool where we can feed our website URL (penalized website) and also all the pages where the link exists and the tool can check and report whether our link exists on those pages or not?

Please let me know

Yes, check out the first post in this thread: [webmasterworld.com...]

There are other link databases, and I believe that at least some will also let you register your own site and see your own link data for free.

The dataset mentioned there is the biggest IMO (and I have paid memberships with it and two other providers).

Another way (if you have a record of the anchor text, or the description used on the linking sites) is to use the site: query with your key phrase or part of the description in double quotes.

e.g. site:linksiregret.com "link text"

Those tools aren't meant for the task the OP requires, probably overkill. What the OP needs is a simple reciprocal link checker, not an entire index of the web. ;)

I'm sure there are other tools that can do this. However Aaron Wall hosts a script for doing exactly what you want. You enter the exact URL where the link is supposed to be. Then you enter the domain name of your client. The tool will check the page where the exact page where the link is supposed to be and report if the link to the domain is there. You can download the results to a CSV file.
