Anybody's who's ever tried to run a manual links exchange program-- a critical component of SEO-- knows that you can tie yourself up in the tediousness of approaching link exchange prospects, first putting their link on your site, then verifying that they've indeed reciprocated and finally monitoring their site periodically to ensure that your link sticks. I can imagine the heartburn that would come from doing this for 20 clients.
I presently use LinksManager for one of my sites. But they only allow one site per subscription. I know that there are other off the shelf applications that allow tracking multiple sites. But is that the best way to go?
(Additionally, I am starting to question whether hitching one's wagon to applications like LinksManager will cause you to run afoul of Google's Pet Peeve of The Week).
Are there any applications out there tailored to what I'm considering? Or is doing a homemade operation from within MS Access or Excel the best way to go?
How do those of you who run multiple client SEO accounts do it?
You need to have access to atleast 4-5 high PageRank websites with lots of pages and a list of directories which you are going to use for link bulding purpose. Delicate a week, month/s as per the requirement, and "run a manual links exchange program" HTH

Unless they're paying you to monitor links (does anybody pay for that?) it's a get in and get out job.
A spreadsheet is a good way to record who you sent to, and when. It's tedious, I know.
As for lack of response, you may want to consider closely the title and subtitle of your post so that it not only reflects the topic of the thread but provokes people to click on it. Like writing a newspaper headline and dek.
"How Best to Track Professional SEO Accounts?" can be easily skimmed and consequently looked over. I would title it something like, "Twenty SEO Clients" with a subtitle of, "How do you manage so many link campaigns?"
We started developing an Access DB for this, but it's not complete yet.
BTW I just cancelled LinksManager as it looks more like G may have a problem with their LinkPartners, viewing it as a link swapping club.
Thanks for your replies, everybody.
