    Need advice on link management tools/software


    We recently found that a link partner's web site was delisted at google. Got a lot of good advice on this and terminated our link to them for the time being. Contacted their principal to let him/her know that google had dropped the site.

    Finding that was pure luck. I think we need some link management assistance. Saw some threads discussing Arelis and read about it.

    I think we are looking for the following functions:

    Inventory our existing links
    Report on the status of the link partners
    Is the link to us up and operating or a dead link
    What is the PR of the link page
    What is the status of the site (listed or delisted by the search engines)

    I saw that Arelis provides quite a few other useful services including tracking all the links of competitors - (that looks great) and asssiting in contacting potential link partners

    Are there other useful link tools/software that accomplish these and other useful functions.

    I've been doing all our linking and requesting links by hand.

    I've noticed that we receive links from sites we never directly contacted. I'm not sure how that happened.

    Can I get advice on this.

    Thanks,

    Dave

    I use linkautomate and is impressed by several functions:

    they check presence of reciprocal link sitewise.
    the ability to control link text description
    Highly configurable automation features.

    I don't think any link management software can show you PR because Google does not have any API to extract this value.

    Arelis, I also use it, but I use it to seek links only. But I will use eyeball to check whether those are quality links before I send email to potential link partners.
