    independent back link checker

    Where do I find a reliable online, real time, independent back link checker ( preferably free of course ) ?
    For a number of reasons, I need a stand alone unit to compare results outsided Google. I know Google analytics are great, and have a seo analytics package, but I need something else that I can access from any computer at any time and at any place to look at my own numbers as well as other sites.

    I have been looking for a back-link checker which is updated on daily basis, previously i was using backlinkwatch but not its not giving perfect results. Even yahoo site explorer has been closed. So we have only one place where we can know perfect back-link its our Google webmaster tool.

    jessiecascott82 spyglass is from link assistant right, so are you getting perfect results. I have used it before but it was trial version, but as per you if it will be good then i will get it today. Seriously I am in need of good back-link checker.

    I hadn't heard of this so I thought I would give it a try. I have thousands of backlinks but it recorded only 6.

    Since Yahoo site explorer and Google api stop the services, I hardly found a good alternative to spy competitor backlink. Tool like opensite explorer and majestic are pay tool.

    Backlinkwatch have too many annoying ads. ahrefs.com seem to be a great tool, will give a try.

    Its getting hard to find backlinks with Yahoo Site Explorer got the plugged pulled. I've been using http://www.majesticseo.com/, but you have to pay to get some useful information. Another one is http://www.opensiteexplorer.org, again you have to pay to get some good info.

    Sorry to disappoint you but registering only lets you see limited information, you will have to pay to see it all.

    When I use chrome and insert link to check backlink at backlinkwatch, it show malware error, Firefox is fine.

    As for Domain-pop, I manage to go in, but it take longer time to load.

    I am using Chrome also but have no problems of malware reporting, maybe it is a regional issue. Is anyone else having a similar problem in other locations?

    I have an update to this. I just went to backlinkwatch and got to the page with no problem, but when I entered a site to scan, I got the following message from Chrome:

    "www.backlinkwatch.com contains content from 'www.articlesale.com', a site known to distribute malware. Your computer might catch a virus if you visit this site."

    So you are absolutely right, there does seem to be a problem.

    I guess it depends on what you actually want. If it is just the numbers of backlinks as you suggest, then open site explorere for example will tell you that.
    But if you want to know the details of them then you will need a paid version of something to be able to view more than 1000 links.
    However, you cannot then compare these to GWT results for your own site as they all give different results.

    I have heard complaints from other people about backlinkwatch and possible malware but that was short lived.

    open site explorer & backlink watch are good. I also use a software called SEO administrator..it was good but you can use it for 60 days..you can try that as well. You can also try Traffic Travis..it is a free application as well but not sure you can check backlinks just give a try.

    Hi.

    It looks like this thread suggests you need to pay to get link detail from MajesticSEO. You can actually download all of your own back-links for free as well as many other things. It is only links to URLs that you don't control that you would need to pay for. This is the same with most the main link tracking technologies our there. The strongest crawlers are OpenSiteExplorer, MajesticSEO and AHrefs - but the pricing varies between the three.
