    I have been working hard on my SEO and want to check how many backlinks my site has.

    I have come across different sites where you enter your URL and will tell you how many backlinks you have.

    All of them are coming up with 0 backlinks. Even if I type in a well known site like facebook or youtube, still comes back with 0.

    Would be grateful if you could let me know what sites/tools you use to check how many backlinks you have to your website.

    Thanks,

    http://ahrefs.com/ I has a limit but it's like 30 searches so you should be fine (it's free, no registration). ​

    Scrapebox works great. Plus you can see what backlinks your competitor has.

    For me majesticseo shows most of the links, opensiteexplorer show like only half of majesticseo. Majesticseo is also quickiest, if you build powerfull backlink, it appear in 3-7 days , you must sing up for free to see backlinks power. For free it shows only 10 best, for mee it is enought , full repport you get only on paid membership for 30€/month.

    backlinkwatch is the best for me, gives you more options to see the quality of backlinks

    I have been using SEO Spyglass. Works 75% of the time, if a website has thousands of backlinks, the program tends to freeze, even on my brand new Macbook Pro.

    I've given up with spyglass as like Typlo says, it freezes a lot and I have just about had enough so I am going to pay for Majestic as I have heard loads of good reports. I was a pro member of SEO Moz so I had full access to open site explorer but again, their updates were too infrequent so you never got an up to date list of backlinks.

    I haven't seen backlinkcheck, moonsearch and backlinkwatch on the list. Not bad all of them but better used together cause none shows complete results unfortunately.

    For checking the links to YOUR website better use Google Webmaster Tools or Bing Webmaster Tools, forgot to mention.
