Ann Smarty at Search Engine Journal has a nice short piece on link building worksheets. These spreadsheets help link builders keep track of their link building efforts.

I am a big fan of building custom tools around your business workflow. So if I was a link builder and had a team of link builders, I would build something custom. The tool I would build would track link builders time, where they got the link from, how long it took, how much it cost (time or money or both), was there an exchange, is the link still active (a small crawler) and integrate it into the business management tools. Possibly track the effectiveness of the link by looking at traffic and keyword rankings. So much can be done when you build in automation into your software.

I'm using Raven and couldn't be happier. The guys are also responsive to bug reports and feedback I send. Also there is a typo: WordStrea(m).

Hey Barry the "Ontolo's worksheet" you cite is no longer available. I created a very similar resource on my blog with a video walk through for anyone interested. http://www.marc-mcdermott.com/blog/why-excel-is-your-best-friend-for-link-building-campaigns -marc
