    Hi peeps,

    Really sorry if this is in the wrong forum section - I couldn't find exactly where it should go...

    What's the best tool to find every outbound link of your website. I'm trying to clean up and lock down my site from any bad neighborhouds I may have linked out to foolishly in my SEO naivity over the past few years...

    Thanks all

    Yeah. It crawls your site and will find all links, internal and external and tell you what pages they are linked from. Also finds server status, 404 errors, redirects, images, js, css, feeds/xml, page titles, meta description, can create sitemaps, both html and xml, can create reports, you can export everything to spread sheets and more.

    Its probably the best free tool ever.

    If you need any help or questions about it just ask, I use it on daily basis for my clients sites.

    If your site is very big it may take a little while to run. I ran it on a clients site last week, it returned over 600000 internal links! I had fun sorting through that excel sheet!
