    Lightbulb Outbound Link Verifier/Counter Needed

    Complimentary to SEO work, I broker text link footer ads (advertiser's text ads displayed on other websites) and I need an app that will enable me to check the publisher's website (where my advertiser's text links reside) for the total number of occurrences across the publisher's entire website (and its pages) for a particular advertiser's URL.

    Consider this scenario:

    Suppose a publisher (with all static HTML pages) says he or she has placed a text link to your URL on every page of his/her website. Let's also say that the publisher's website consists of 28,000+ pages. Without having to check each and every page manually, how could one verify the number of pages that contained their specific URL text link?

    In essence, what I'm trying to do is count the number of pages, and/or total occurrences of a specific text link.

    Note that I'm already familiar with:
    • Google's ability to give me inbounds (after they've been indexed)
    • Xenu (broken links, etc.)
    • W3C checklink version
    • Optilink
    • Reciprocal link checkers (where each link resident URL is entered manually)

    All the above have their purpose and place, however, none can do what I'm asking.

    Any information on a script, a programmer for hire, an online utility, or etc. would be most appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    A quick search at Sourceforge turned up:
    * http://sourceforge.net/projects/phpcrawl/

    PM me if you need help installing and modifying.
