Reliable incoming link checker

I know we are told webmaster tools are best for checking incoming links, but I find that a lot of links that have been removed still show months later. Can anyone recommend a reliable tool to check incoming links - preferably free - and if it tells you if it is nofollow even better.

One I saw was http://www.opensiteexplorer.org/. Wasn’t sure how reliable it was though

Have you seen this thread? http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/showthread.php?813606-independent-back-link-checker

Thank you the link had exactly what I was looking for. Sorry, should have searched a bit more thoroughly through the previous posts first :frowning:

No problem - I remembered seeing it recently, so I knew what I was looking for, which always helps. :slight_smile:

As that seems to have answered your query, I’ll close this thread before it starts filling up with fluff and Spam.
