No-follow link detector tool wanted

2 replies
I'm looking for a piece of software that will do this:

I give it a list of hundreds/thousands of pages that link to a specific web page.

The software I want will crawl through all those pages, read the code for each one, and create a report that tells me whether the links are Follow or No-Follow.

Do you know of a tool that will do it?

Thanks!

(Why is this useful? It's easy to find forums and blogs and profiles where my competitors have planted links. But when I sample them by hand, about half of them are no-follow links so it's not worth my time to plant my own links there. With this software, I will end up with a list of the most powerful places where I can plant my links.)

    Personally I think you are spending to much time thinking about this. Create a link and move on.

    1.Nofollow links are not a waste of time. While they may not pass on pr Google does count then as a link. I have some of them listed in my Google webmasters page for a couple of sites. Pretty sure the big G would not list them there if they did not count for something.

    2. How many sites do you think have nothing but dofollow links? No site that gets its links naturally is my guess. The whole purpose of creating backlinks to your site is to mimic natural popularity. If Google is not picking up on the fact that a sites backlinks do not include any or a very small percentage of nofollow links yet I am sure they will be in the future.

    You need to have a wide range of backlink types just like what would happen naturally anything else will at some point get flagged.
