How many keyword/links can gal handle until it starts to cause problems.

That is totally dependant on your hardware and load. The more GALs, the more load, the more of an impact it can make.

Could you give me some ballpark numbers? I plan on creating and automatically inputting over 5000 new links/urls

To be honest, I really can't - however with the 4.x series, I would be very hesitant to add anything like that number. Each post has to be parsed for your entries. The more you have, the more parsing takes place. Even with the powerful caching capabilities of version 6, I would be hesitant to add that many.

Saying that, if you have the hardware, it is dooable, I personally wouldnt shoot for more than 100 (though some customers have over 1000).

We have over 700 on our forum and haven't noticed any slowdown. We are looking at adding another 5000, but I think we'll hold off until the new release
