Links Page

I’ve been thinking about what to do with the links page when I re-do my site. It’s terribly neglected and perpetually out of date, yet I link to sites all the time in my blog (and on occasion on other pages). Manual maintenence has not worked, so why not let the links page aggregate those links in an intelligent way?

When the entire site is running on WordPress1, I can pull URLs from every post and every page into a separate database table. Sites I link to the most can float to the top and links can be aged appropriately (for the blog posts at least). I could even provide a couple of different views (most frequently linked to, most recent links, etc.). Seems like it would be a pretty cool featurette.
