Once upon a time the internet was not catalogued and links pages were THE way to find targeted information. Then along came search engines that found you whatever you needed, and links pages became obsolete and even a little tacky. Now search engines are mostly good for swamping you with link farms, advertisements, and scams, so those link pages don't seem like such a bad idea now, huh? Now I'm off to convert pictures of cats into binary and post something witty on alt.wesley.crusher.die.die.die.
