I need software that will pull the anchor text of backlinks.

Preferably software - if a script will do it, ok - but software would be better as it is quicker. Also it'd be great if it could pull the # of outbound links as well, that each backlink has. For example, the search term "link:http://www.site.com" has let's say 300 backlinks... It would go through and grab the anchor text of each link.

Thanks!

I doubt anyone would post that kinda scripting/program for free. If it was in general circulation there would be even more spam in the search engines! Thats the kinda stuff people will keep to themselves....

I'm kinda new to the keyword game... Just wondering what the value of this information is? Fun to know, or does it help you determine better keywords?

Thanks,

I wrote the script, but am still unclear as to how to interpret the output. Is a backlink to www.example.com the same as to example.com? For example, on a popular news site I see many different names for the same page, resulting in me not recognizing them as backlinks:

$ perl backlinks.pl [cnn.com...]
[money.cnn.com...]
::External links: 11
[money.cnn.com...]
::External links: 8
[money.cnn.com...]
::External links: 10
[money.cnn.com...]
::External links: 8
[money.cnn.com...]
::External links: 10
[asahi.com...]
::External links: 5
::http://www.cnn.com/ - CNN.com
[newsvac.newsforge.com...]
::External links: 46
