I'm guessing SH has a list of inbound links that, for some reason, he feels might not be in Google's index? If the pages linking to him aren't indexed, of course, he gets no credit for the links. So, he wants to make sure G knows about those pages, but wants to do so at the least cost to himself?
Is that a fair assessment, SpamHelp?
If so, SH, I suspect you're tilting at windmills. At the start of the Link Pop craze, a list of incoming link pages was a fairly common "trick" recommended by many, but we quickly discovered it was largely unnecessary. If you know about a page linking to you, chances are pretty darn good that Google knows about it, too. The first step I would suggest, then, is use some of Google's Advanced Operators to find out. The allinurl operator will probably tell you what you need to know and save you a whole lot of worry.
At least someone sorts of understands me
The incoming links is largely unnecessary as you say, with which I agree completely, but it's not completely unncessary. If some site is linking to your site from the template and adds a new page, chances are that it would take quite a while till the page gets indexed by Google. Linking to it yourself might speed things up a bit.
At the moment, what I'm doing is that whenever I find a new incoming URL, I submit it to Google so that it gets indexed. Even then, Google only sees 1 backward link that I submitted over a month ago, even though it has successfully cached links from other sites ... but even though the links are in its cache, it doesn't mark them as backward links, and I don't get PR votes.
Another idea I could use that might be more effective is that when an incoming link gives its 3rd hit from the same URL (useful for filtering out URLs with session IDs in them), it automatically submits it to Google... though I'm not sure if this goes against their TOS.
