If you don't follow, the above code effectively sets the search phrase as link:www.webmasterworld.com. If a spider followed such a link, would it work for or against me?
It would be hard to persuade me that you'd get penalised for it as all you are doing is creating a shop front to cross reference your inbound links between the directories.
It sounds good to me NetGrease give it a go and if you lose your listings let me know so I don't lose mine as well. :)
Take a look at [google.com...]
You'll notice the googlebot isn't allowed to spider it's own SERPs.
This is probably true for other engines, although I've not tested...
If nothing does, then I'll find some way of harvesting the links from the recip. pages myself, and sticking them into an XML d/b. Hopefully I can do this with something like ASP, which might also help me eliminate duplications and advert links (failing that there's always the "manual" approach). Then these d/b entries could be output on demand via ASP into my recip. directory page, as opposed to just using direct links to the engines pages as in my post above...
