Hi all,

I'm planning to build a system that can track whether other web sites have link to mine or not, using PHP & MySql. Meaning with that, i can check where is my reciprocal link on other people's site.

Could you guys advice me on how to build the system or any references or better alternative besides PHP MySql?

Any references or advice will help.

Thanks in advance!

Regards,
Lowkei

If I read you correctly you might try to reinvent the wheel :)

Depending on your server setup there are many stats scripts that provide this sort of info

Now if you need to grab that content
do a search here on how get/read/use a page content

You mean I can get these kind of scripts in my hosting? I'm using cpanel now. Do you know where I can get it?

Thanks :)

I do not use cpanel
however most statistic tools (scripts)will provide you with information on ref URL, number of visit via external link etc...
check or install any statistic tool available through your cpanel.

good luck!

thanks for the reply :)

err..anyway, i think there're some misundestanding.. I'm not looking for visitors tracking nor traffic reference stats.

But I'm looking for a scripts that can trace/track back whether a webmaster link bcak to my site in link-exchange campaign.

Sorry if i have made thing blur.

Any reference that i can refer?:) thanks

sorry, my fault, I seem to have glossed over that line in your first post

are you looking to find out where your links are?
or do you have a list and want to check that they are still there?

or both?

Check HotScripts [hotscripts.com] and SourceForge [sourceforge.net] because there are bound to be existing packages that will do this and save you writing your own.

If you are determined to re-invent the wheel, here's some tips... :)

If you know where the link is supposed to be, then you would:

1. CURL [php.net] the page
2. Parse the page [php.net] for your URL

If you don't know where the link is supposed to be, then you would:

1. Sign up for the Yahoo API [developer.yahoo.com]
2. CURL results from a search at the inlinkData [developer.yahoo.com] API

the Google API [code.google.com] would also work for finding links
