OK, I think I am getting a clearer picture of this now.
As to software tools to help manage linking, I do not like to use software that makes use of the engines out of fear. There is one tool that works as a robot (I guess it is better not to mention names here) and totally independent of the engines. You enter a few sites to visit and then it follows the outbound links all over the place.
I decided to give it a try as I was hoping it could zero in on relevant links better or faster than I could. After the tool found a bunch of possibilities I started viewing at possibility in its special browser. Then I got a virus and ended up having to restore my entire disk from backup. I was lucky I was making daily backups.
I normally do most of my work in Mac and have never had a virus in 15 years as a Mac user. I do have a windows machine in case I need to run windows-only software such as this tool. But I am kind of afraid to test this thing further.
What I would like is a software that finds pages with outbound links (potential link partner) and which looks at keyword density at the same time. If the software I mentioned above will not do that then I guess I would do just as well without it. I do not need a software to create a link directory. But I would not mind a tool that would help find me good prospects.
