When I first created LinkyTools, it was free, it grew at an outrageous pace.

  • Over 16,000 subscribed users (free subscriptions) in a matter of weeks,
  • Hundreds of thousand linky lists
  • Over 5 million entries
  • Over THREE MILLION thumbnail images
  • Linky lists on blogs are displayed hundreds of thousands of times a day

I personally take care of all customer service. I listen, I help, I improve. The expense and time got completely out of hand. Donations and advertising didn’t happen. The hosting expense (I paid for), customer service (me) and maintenance (me too) of Linky Tools became simply unsustainable as a "free service".

So I'm charging a small yearly fee ($24.00). That’s two one dollar bills a month.

If you do not use PayPal
or credit cards,
you can mail me a $24.00 check:

If you just thought "no way, I’ll find a free service", you'll miss out on a lot of great stuff.

This is the best linky system on the Internet. I am constantly adding new tools and features. The tools, the traffic it brings you, the web links back to you, the increased exposure on the Internet from the blog directory, blog hops and lists… all for about half a cup of coffee a month. Check out some of the great features you get:

  • Personal Link Library -
            check it out here...
  • The entire site rebuilt for increased speed and reliability
  • Designate the Number of Columns you want your list to display in
  • Show Grid Lines on your list. This can help your list be more readable in many situations
  • Choose Sorting Options for your list: Oldest to newest, newest to oldest, random order, by "likes", by title
  • Designate any linky list as a "Blog Hop", Linky Tools original idea on sharing common lists of links with other blogs
  • Designate any linky list as Private so that only you can submit entries to it.
  • Cloning allows you to make exact multiple duplicates of existing lists copying over all the settings from the original list.
  • Get the Click Count (stats) on your linky entries.
  • Your blog visitors can choose to "LIKE" an entry, Facebook style. Use "likes" to vote for entries
  • You can now choose to Moderate your entries. They will not appear publicly unitl you have approved them
  • Choose to get Email Notifications when someone submits and entry to your list
  • Have your linky list showing in a Scrolling Window. The vertical height is a fixed size with a scroll bar allowing a long list to be on your blog without taking up too much space
  • Choose to have your linky list show in our Directory of Linky Lists
  • Choose to show an inspirational Bible Verse below your linky list
  • Pick Winners on several linky list types including Thumbnails
  • Require that a Back Link exists... when an entry is made, Linky Tools checks to see if a link to your blog post exists on their blog. Entries cannot be submitted until it does.
  • Option to require Email Address and/or Full Name with linky entries
  • One-click "Get Lists" of email addresses or full names fromm your list
  • Start/Stop times bug from old version is fixed. Lists open and close exactly the time you list
  • Remaining time, or time to start is shown on your list: "This list will close in 6 days, 17 hrs, 41 min (6/10/2011 5:32 PM CST)"
  • Choose whether clicking a link in your list opens a New Window in your browser or not
Also coming: Linky Recipes, Linky Stuff, Linky Reference Desk, and a bunch of other Linky sites that I don't want to name because I don't want the ideas stolen... I'll be rolling these out, one each day this week!

As always you’ll get personal service from me when you have feedback, idea or comment; just email me: brent at


Of course, entering links into a Linky Tool List on someone’s blog will always be free.


Thanks so much, I know you'll love Linky Tools.

Hoping for a dependable linky service...

·         Since I host a sizable weekly party on my blog, I have been hoping for a linky service that is functional, dependable and easy-to-use. Linky Tools came on the scene and fulfilled my wish perfectly. Linky Tools functions beautifully and consistently. And the service is unbelievable! Brent has been lightning fast in addressing issues and questions. I had a request last week and within 10 minutes I had received an email saying, "It's done!". Now that's service! The best part is that Linky Tools goes beyond simply hosting blog parties with great tools like the Picture Caption Linky Tools and articles about Building a Better Blog. Clearly, the folks at Linky Tools know what bloggers need and work hard to provide tools that make our blogs better." - Kimba
