The process of creating your own large link directory and e-mailing site owners for reciprocal links has been automated by Zeus. This software includes a spider and a keyword index (that you create) to find additional sites. I've done this manually, and Zeus is a LOT more efficient. One site I work with has a themed directory listing about 4,000 sites; Zeus has inspected about 120,000 sites to identify these. (You must approve all sites before inclusion.) It includes a contact manager function to keep track of whom you have e-mailed, etc. For a review of Zeus [aim-pro.com], check the AIM-pro site. It takes a little while to learn, but is very powerful once you get going.
