Q: Which backlinks checking software to use?

+13 votes
There are a lot of backlink checkers and programs to track the number of the backlinks on the market! Which is the best one - with the most accurate results? Can you please share your experience with it (them)? I am using inSpyder to track my rank positions, but is there a good software which can tell how many backlinks are pointing to my site or my clients' sites? Thanks

Here are the best checkers in my opinion:
1. SEO Moz:
2. Majestic SEO:
3. SEO Glass: (it is a program, not a site)
4. Raven Tools:
5. Ahrefs:

All are good and do a pretty decent job!

It is hard to say which one is the best! All of them have pros and cons! Make your own research and decide for yourself! BTW, you've mentioned InSpyder program - I am using it as well and I'm pretty happy with it. Here is one tutorial how to use it - Hope that helps

i use for me its the best , but the price tag for $75/month is pricey... so i decide to use group buy so we can share the cost, may be you can do it too with your friend ?

Most of the people love SEOMoz. but I suppose that ahrefs is a solution too
Ahrefs is a little bit expensive, that's true. I've found a good alternative - SE Ranking
