    Im building a list site , where the websites joining my list needs to place a return link.
    I would like to build a 'bot'that checks for this return links every 2-3 days.
    Each sites gets a unique ID in the linking code.

    Does anybody have an idea , how to check for this. It will be used to filter out cheaters...

    Well it depends. If you have them give you the URL of the page where the link will reside it's relatively trivial for you to get the page and go over it to check for a link (get the file and try to match the pattern of the text of the link). If you need to go over the entire site it's a bigger job as you need to write a robot to go over the site and follow links.
