plugin question for wordpress users

Is there a replacement for the wordpress dashboard (specifically the ‘incoming links’ thing) that doesn’t suck? Fully 1/2 of the links in my ‘incoming links’ list right now are the same blog, all of which are being counted because I’m in the blogroll of that blog, not the posts. Technorati appears to be indexing them over and over and over again. Blah. So surely there must be something out there which isn’t so mediocre (potentially polling multiple blog search sites and correlating their results?) and which I can just drop into wordpress? Comments and/or emails welcome.

  1. The dashboard is pretty mediocre, and I don’t think much energy is currently going into improving it. Bryan Veloso is the design lead for WordPress and Automattic, but it has only been his job since the end of July, and there is a lot on his plate.

    For “incoming links”, I used to enjoy Measure Map, but became tired of its Goog future being unclear, so I naturally just use Google Analytics now. I use the WordPress plugin Google Analyticator. You have to dig in if you want the detailed referrer data, but I am not that interested in that.

    I also would like a stats experience that is a free and more focused on bloggers’ desires.

  2. What I want to do on my blog, is every few hours take the oldest post and move it to the
    front of the queue, all automatically. Anyone know if there is a plugin that can do this or
    a simple way to set up another plugin to do this (use my own feed perhaps)?
