Tips on Link Checking and Scrubbing

Many of you know I run a directory site and may be interested in some tips I posted on scrubbing links over at WebmasterWorld in their Directory forum titled "Directory Listing Hijack Detection". It's a bit off topic from my normal bot busting posts, so there isn't much of an audience for it here, but for anyone interested in the topic you may pick up a few tidbits from things I've been doing.

Somehow, at the end of the day, busting stealth bots and hunting links hijacked by domain parks doesn't feel all that different as they're both trying to slide in under the radar to make a profit without being noticed.
