Ok, so I have coded up a PHP tool which checks whether backlinks provided by an outsourcer exist, are ****************, are valid, and what their pagerank is. Obviously there are tools that do this when the links are indexed, but its sometimes useful, when you get list of URLs, to check them straightaway. Then you can ask for invalid URLs to be replaced etc, or find out which freelancers are best. I'd like to provide this free of charge to the community, in return for the inspiration, help and tools that I have had. However, to do that, I'd want to make some small changes, and move the host etc., all of which takes time. So I only really want to put in the time doing this if people actually would find it useful, and use it. Otherwise it's a waste of my time. If you'd find a tool like that useful, please indicate on this thread, and I'll sort it out and post a link in a few days. Happy hatting!
