External link check script
Start off saying im not very knowledgeable about SEO im just going to school for computer science so my brother is asking me to make a program for him :p. Wondering if anyone knows the simplest way to check the number of external links on a site. for example this website (linkvendor) will check it. im assuming its just using a simple script so I was wondering if anyone knew of one? possibly just a command line you could use? I have no idea, simply looking for the simplest way that isnt a website. thanks for any info on the matter!

Hi zocheyado, I also was wondering how is this possible to create backlink crawler. I asked few programmers and they told me that is not an easy process to create it, but I assume there is suppose to be the way to make it. If you will find out the way please share it here.

zocheyado hasn't been back since the day after he posted this (February 2012), so it's unlikely he will reply; but since you asked (and incase anyone else comes looking for the answer:

The backlink checker you are asking about is a common tool... as mentioned by biotinforte you could check backlinkwatch.com
I don't think he was asking about checking backlinks

Hi ClickyB, with all do respect I think you wrong.
The links on the site called outbound links or OBL, external links it is links that suppose to be off your site, and in other words called backlinks. So I think I got him correct.
What about backlinkwatcher, it is one of the worst tools existed, slow, irrelevant, old.
There is few good tools it usually not free, that why I was wondering is there any algorithm to make my own tool, but easy way.
