There is one or possibly more link spammers evidently operating out of the UK, since their link titles are usually always the names of British cities and regions Ie: London, Essex, Suffolk, Leeds, East Anglia, etc... This party always leaves the reciprocal link box blank. At this point all I can do is delete the junk links from my database manually, but this is time consuming. Fortunately, the links do not become active until I approve them, but still, my links database quickly fills up with these unwanted junk links.
Spammers? In the UK? Neva! We're British don't you know? ;)
This would help you a bit.
Eventually you will need to get a Recoprocal link check codeing integrated into your submission form to avoid further headache..
Major modifications to this script could be possible, except I know extremely little about CGI or PERL programming. I have been able to make minor changes to scripts including this one, but nothing major.
I have thought about Arelis, but I would need something that can replace exactly what I am using now, and be able to create .shtml pages since that's what I am using now, and something with a one-time purchase price and NO monthly fees. I decided long ago not to use any links management services. For one thing they charge steep monthly fees.
No, there are no reciprocal links in any of these junk links. They leave it blank, and this linking script doesn't require it to be filled in.
Lets pretend my site is www.Widget.com, and I've gone out and created 50 partnerships with high traffic PR sites. The link they use to get to me though is :
Would my www.Widget.com homepage still get the credit for that link?
-write the description or linktext into a new var
-remove all spaces in this var
-replace 1337 captals (1->l, 0->o, rn->m, ...)
-now check this var for banned words (casino, viaga etc.) and reject submission if one of this strings is present.
